Shadi Dadenji (LinkedIn) is a true citizen of the world. He is half Polish and half Lebanese, was born and raised in Beirut, is quadrilingual, and has lived and worked in many far-flung places. A specialist in computer science and game design, he bridges the gap between designers and programmers, and is dedicated to making SkookumScript increasingly powerful and easy-to-use. Shadi was one of the first SkookumScript users at United Front Games—as they developed Sleeping Dogs, he liaised between engineering and mission design to ensure that SkookumScript had all the bells and whistles the designers needed.
After his stint at UFG, he helped ship The Witcher 3 in Warsaw and Horizon: Zero Dawn in Amsterdam before returning to Canada and reigniting his smoldering love affair with SkookumScript. He enjoys singing and playing musical instruments, and is good enough that his neighbours rarely complain about the racket.
