The son of a watercolor painter, Matt J. Britton grew up surrounded by art in San Jose California, eventually graduating from nearby Santa Clara University. Upon arriving in Hollywood after college, Matt quickly gravitated into the animatronics and special effects industry, working in creative management roles at Cinovation, The Jim Henson Company, and Industrial Light + Magic.
Matt's video game career began with a move to Electronic Arts, art directing games such as Command and Conquer 3, Red Alert 3, and Battle for Middle-earth 2, which was featured in the Smithsonian’s Art of Video Games exhibit.
Following the video game audience to social games and later mobile games, Matt co-founded teams and art directed games at Zynga, TapZen, Kabam and FoxNext. His most recently released titles include Coin Hunt World and Marvel Strike Force.
