Prior to taking over as CEO, Shea led large initiatives at the company, including creating a digital currency system to make purchasing games easier and establishing a new form of advertising which allows WildTangent’s sponsors to be visible to more gamers. Shea has spent the past 22 years in technology, both designing and leading product development. He holds numerous patents in the area of digital currency, advertising and consumer technology.

Shea began his career at Sony Interactive Studios while earning a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science from the University of California at San Diego. A proud resident of the Pacific Northwest, he has also been named to the Puget Sound Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” list.

“I am excited to dig in with the MixMode team on the applications for their proprietary, third-wave AI ,” said Shea. “I believe their first killer app is security, but the opportunities for their core technology could very well extend beyond security.”
