Brandon Kidwell

Fire up the latest version of Madden NFL and you’ll be seeing the work of a Great Oaks graduate.  2007 Live Oaks grad Brandon Kidwell helped to make the football experience come to life.  From the EA Tiburon office in Florida (and more recently, from home), Kidwell and the other game designers work to improve the game for players round the world.
