Norman is a pioneer in game development education in the Philippines – having led the creation of the country’s first full game development program in 2009. His involvement in games goes as early as 2004 as part of a group that managed the community for a locally published Korean MMO; this is where he first got the idea that Filipinos can be great game developers and be globally competitive if only given the technical know-how, equipment and exposure.
He founded Anino Games in 2001 as the first Game Development Studio in the Philippines. Their independent games have won multiple international awards such as the Independent Games Festival while their 3rd party games have also gone on to reach the top 10 rank in the Appstores and Online Portals.
