Creative Mind Podcast Bonus Episode 3 - Andi Miller

Creative Mind Bonus Episode: Andy Miller is Not Playing Games When It Comes to Esports

(by Bobby Brill)

In this bonus episode of Creative Mind, we are welcomed by Andy Miller, the owner of the San Francisco Shock, the San Francisco-based professional esports team, to dive into the fast-growing esports industry and the impact on society and the job market.

Andy is no stranger to technology, having been the Vice President for Mobile Advertising at Apple and co-founder of Remix Media, Inc. and its app Spun, as well as co-founder of start-up vehicle StartingFive. He is also a co-owner of the Sacramento Kings of the National Basketball Association.

So, it is no surprise that he is the Chairman and co-owner of NRG Esports, an esports league that is “Fueled by the energy of talented individuals, this particular team represents the concentrated ambition to achieve one goal. That goal: to build the ideal esports team for many years to come.”

But what does that mean to the average gamer or animation student? Andy breaks down the “camaraderie and competition” that drives players into the fast-growing world of online play.
