My name is Brian Sharon and I am the creator of Sharon Shares. I created this website with one mission; share stories from within Canadian video games industry. Canada is a hot bed for both video game development, and culture – yet surprisingly enough even with all these amazing events, and creative people we garner very little attention.
Sometimes we forget that behind these works of art (and I do believe games are art) there are people made of flesh and blood. I want to shine a spotlight on some of the great teams and people who are responsible for making this industry what it is.
I often liken the video games industry to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Fans and outsiders often have preconceived notions about who the creators are and have expectations based around solely their imagination. While Wonka bars and video games may be magical in and of themselves – it is creators, the people, the human element behind it all that is truly interesting and more than worthy of our time.
It is also my hope to share with you my own personal journey in this industry. I literally gave up the entire life I had set for myself to pursue my dream of working as a journalist who covers video games.
I want to be as honest and forthcoming about every success, every failure, and every lesson learned.
What I really want is for you to come with me every step of the way on my journey to reach my goal.
Follow me follow my dream – every step of the way.
