Hi! Aðalsteinn “Alli” Óttarsson here.
I´m an active video games Angel Investor and Strategic Advisor. The companies I have invested in with span Los Angeles where I live, in Iceland where I am from and Europe.
Prior I was a Senior Development Director at Riot Games (acquired by Tencent). I was the Development Director on League of Legends, the world’s most played PC game at the time. And later led the team of Development Directors and Development Managers working on both League of Legends as well as Riot´s new games at various stages in the game development lifecycle.
Before that, I was the Production Director at CCP Games (acquired by Pearl Abyss). Makers of EVE Online, the space-based, sandbox, persistent world MMO. Originally a programmer and a project manager in the engineering department I went on to lead CCP’s transformation to Agile and cross-functional organization.
In a previous life I hosted a weekly radio show and monthly club nights for drum’n’bass scene in Iceland, did stadium announcing for Iceland’s national handball team and MC’d the first chess boxing match in Iceland.
