My name is Leo Iezzi. I’m currently working as a Lead Level artist at Microsoft - The Coalition.
I enjoy sharing knowledge with others. This has recently inspired me to create a mentorship program that I run in my spare time to help and encourage others entering the gaming industry.

I also collaborate with some schools around the world, providing industry know-how and support.
With an artistic eye and a technical mindset, I enjoy the daily challenges of the videogame industry. There is always something new to learn which activates my brain and keeps the creative juices flowing. I usually explore fields that improve my environment/level artist results, from digital painting to Python programming.
Previously, I worked for various video game companies such as Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Reflections, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, PUBG Corp, and Lka.it, All the teams have been giving me the chance to work on fantastic IPs such as FarCry, The Division, PlayStation VR, PUBG, The Town of Light.
I also have been freelancing for other non-competitive companies, participating in and providing supervision for various projects, including VR expertise for businesses, VR training experiences, and more.
Always open to participating in interviews, articles, podcasts, Livestream, etc. Please get in touch if you want me to share something with your audience :)
