Cam Banks is an award-winning RPG designer, developer, and producer. He is currently a creative director at Fandom Tabletop.
He was born in the antipodean paradise of New Zealand, a nation whose geography doubles for such fictional landscapes as Mythic Greece and Middle Earth.
Despite his uneventful education in history, philosophy, and psychology at NZ's Waikato University, he learned his true passion was in playing games and making things up. Forsaking his homeland, he emigrated to the USA to marry his soul mate and pursue such diverse careers as retail manager, cafe manager, client engagement manager, and library annex manager.
He spent ten years working for Margaret Weis Productions and helped create, develop, and manage over fifty roleplaying games and sourcebooks, including award-winning RPGs based on Marvel Comics, Smallville, Firefly, and Leverage, before departing to join the team at Atlas Games. At the end of 2018 he returned with his family to New Zealand and in 2019 joined Fandom to further develop his Cortex Prime system.
Cam lives in Auckland, New Zealand with his wife Jess and two sons, geeks and gamers all.
