Our Leadership Model

Our philosophy is simple - at CerebralFix, we believe that the best work comes from collaboration. 

That's why our studio is co-led by a team of people instead of a single individual. Together, our Senior Leadership Team ensures that we have the vision, the people, and the partners needed to craft our incredible stories and experiences.

Chelsea Rapp
Co-CEO / Head of Corporate Strategy

Chelsea is our Head of Corporate Strategy and is responsible for shaping our company strategy and vision. She works with the Leadership Team to identify the best way to engage with emerging technologies, markets, and new partners to bring creative ideas to life. These days you’ll find her on the global game development conference circuit – talking about all things CerebralFix – so be sure to say hello!

Ryan Hawker
Co-CEO / Head of Studio

Ryan aims to make working at CerebralFix one of the best decisions people make in their life. As our Head of Studio, he cares for our people and strives to ensure we are all living our best lives. Because there's always room for improvement, Ryan likes to spice things up and experiment with fun new ways of working together. Based in Ōtautahi - Christchurch, you'll find him in the studio, out on the waves, or hiding in a freshly dug sand pit with his family.

Tom Brosnahan
Co-CEO / Head of Business Development

Tom is our Head of Business Development, keeping his sights locked on exciting project possibilities we see on the horizon, guiding CerebralFix toward the creation of meaningful and fun experiences for years to come. Tom started at CerebralFix in New Zealand over 12 years ago as a sound designer and composer for games, and he now calls Los Angeles home. Be sure to connect with him if you’d like to explore a collaboration!

Our Management Team

Our Directors and Department Managers are vital to crafting our unforgettable experiences. Whether our partners come to us with established concept material or simply a dream, this team ensures that our artists, designers, developers, and testers have what they need to bring ideas to life.

They live the CerebralFix values by empowering our teams both inside the office and out -  championing them at conferences and events, and supporting their professional development.
