Chance Glasco is a nonresident senior fellow at the Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center in Orlando, FL. He provides insights into all things related to the video game industry, virtual reality, and other emerging technologies for the Atlantic Council.
Prior to his start in the video game industry, Glasco graduated from Full Sail University in 2001, where he was later inducted into their Hall of Fame for his contributions to students and the gaming industry.
Glasco’s first project after graduation was working on the Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks franchise, Medal of Honor. After a successful first game, he and other developers left their jobs to form a new studio, Infinity Ward. The Oklahoma-based game studio would go on to create the Call of Duty franchise, which has become the best-selling video game franchise of the new millennium, selling over 300 million copies to date.
Glasco was also a co-founder of Doghead Simulations, known for their virtual reality conferencing application, rumii. His efforts to re-humanize social media and remote work through virtual reality have been used to provide therapy to victims of human trafficking, conduct virtual classrooms for students in quarantine, and connect Tanzanian tribes to high school students in the United States.
Glasco is currently the owner of the video game and virtual reality consulting company, The Game Consultants, where he helps organizations deliver gaming or VR projects from the ground up. He is regularly featured as a keynote or guest speaker in many international gaming and technology conventions around the world.
