Please join us in welcoming our new-hires and celebrating the career advancement of some staff here at Paizo Inc.
Logan Bonner, Pathfinder Lead Designer
Hello! I’m Logan Bonner, the new Pathfinder Lead Designer. My job is to see to the health of the game’s ruleset, make sure we’re putting out inspiring new rules for you, and monitor where and how new concepts enter the rules space as the game grows so it stays fresh and exciting, but manageable to understand, run, and play. I’ve been at Paizo for a long while now, with my first big book (as an editor) being Ultimate Equipment. Designing Second Edition with Jason, Mark Seifter, and Stephen Radney-MacFarland was the biggest job in my time here, and the new places we can take the game are really exciting! We want to surprise people and deliver new concepts as well as bringing back the best of Pathfinder First Edition. The best place to find my design discussions is Twitter, where I’m @loganbonner.
James Case, Developer
We were pleased to announce his transfer in our blog: Introducing Our New Org Play Developer!
Glenn Elliot, Program Manager
Maryssa Lagervall, Web Content Manager
Hey guys, I’ve adopted the website ala Bruce Wayne tragic orphan style. A new super suit and alter ego are pending. Until then, come yell with me about comics, movies, and any other pop culture thing you can think of @maryssamari
Patrick Hurley, Editor
Kieran Newton, Editor
Hello “gamers.” My name is kieran (he/him), and to become Paizo’s newest editor, I bought a car and drove 2600ish miles over the course of five days, from New York City. I think I have surprised even myself with my level of commitment to this particular bit. I’ve been editing for a long time, but I’m *really* excited to finally be able to do that in games, and on products as vastly cool and complex as Pathfinder and Starfinder. I’m just learning my way around these weird worlds and their canon, but I can’t wait to help folks tell weird, complicated, and most importantly, challenging stories here. For now, though, feel free to follow me on twitter @kierantnewton, where I mostly yell about video games and make weird jokes, and on twitch at twitch.tv/eyelur0, where I mostly yell at video games and make weird jokes.
Michael Nzazi, Project Coordinator
Hi, I am Michael, the new Project Coordinator working with the Project Management Office team. I am a French-born speaker originally from Congo, and I have lived in Portland, OR and Boston, MA before settling myself in Seattle. Before joining Paizo, I was working at Microsoft. I enjoy doing project management work and will be supporting the team to build a strong PMO. I am excited to be part of the organization!

I'm Mark Seifter, one of the four leads on the creation of Pathfinder Second Edition and the new Design Manager.

Aaron Shanks, Marketing and Media Manager
I became Paizo’s part-time Public Relations Manager in 2018 and have become a full-time Marketing and Media golem this year. I have a hand in managing news, reviews, interviews, and the multitude of our business communications. I have spent over twenty years working for economic development and arts nonprofits in marketing, communications, and the performing arts. Roleplaying games have been a part of my life since I was ten and I’ve have been in a player in an ongoing homebrew game for over 25 years. I’m at @aaronwshanks on Twitter. (he/him)
