Justin Burnham started in the game industry at the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences as a Project Manager for D.I.C.E. Summit back in 2007.

From there, he expanded into many different roles within the gaming industry that allowed him to learn various perspectives. While still at AIAS, he dabbled in contract roles for QA testing, music licensing, and business development to gain more knowledge of the game space until he left them all to bring gaming to South by Southwest and founded SXSW Gaming in 2010.

He and his team grew SXSW Gaming to become one of the fastest-growing components of SXSW at the time. While still at SXSW, to keep fresh in the game space he jumped on the Devolver Digital team in 2013.

In 2017, while still serving a role in the publishing space but now with Devolver Digital’s majority-owned Good Shepherd Entertainment, he saw the opportunity to innovate and help DreamHack expand its portfolio and grow its festival presence not only across the globe but also into a more all-encompassing gaming lifestyle brand as DreamHack’s Global Creative Director.
