I’m Shane Breedveld, a 27-year-old Games Producer from the Netherlands. However, seeing as you arrived on this page you want to know more than just my age and occupation.
I’m a student at the Breda University of Applied Sciences in The Netherlands, with a burning passion for game development and more specifically the management side. Growing up playing classics like Starcraft, Halo, Crash Bandicoot, and many more games, I quickly discovered that I wanted to become a game developer, especially once I got my hands on the map editors of Warcraft 3, Far Cry, Halo, and many more.
Through my high school years and jobs on the side, I and others recognized that I have a knack for management and supportive leadership. Being able to give constructive feedback whilst supporting and facilitating a team, which would usually lead to the team’s performance improving.
Shortly after high school at the age of 18, I moved abroad to Sweden, learning and graduating in the Swedish language, taking on a lot of responsibility and learning that I’m able to adapt to a new environment rather well.
It was also during this time that I was leading an online gaming community in World of Warcraft of over 100 members which thrived for over 4 years. Clearing the hardest content the game had to offer whilst managing this huge community at the time.
As a Producer the core point that drives me is to create as perfect of a game as possible, understanding that nothing is ever perfect.
To reach this goal I focus on improving and supporting others around me, after all, creating games is a team effort. Facilitating the entire team’s growth throughout the course of development whilst supporting them to run at maximum efficiency is one of my key motivating factors, not only does this improve the quality of the team but also the product that they are working on.
This is in my opinion the foundation for success and is something that I strive to achieve within any team I am part of.
Feel free to reach out to me at any time and I’ll respond as fast as I can.
