Anuja Parikh

A Pittsburgh native, Anuja graduated from University of Pittsburgh in Psychology. Looking for a way to combine her major with her love of games and innovative technologies, she joined the University of Pittsburgh Center for Learning in Out-of-School Environments (UPCLOSE) in 2004. There, she received the opportunity to develop her first game, Click!, a live-action role-playing game for middle school girls. She loved that she was able to help inspire and excite girls through games to learn about topics they would have never thought about otherwise and wanted to continue to create that experience for people everywhere.

Anuja has made several games since then for all ages and in many mediums, including card games, board games, role-playing games, and both flash and 3D computer games.

Anuja currently works as an associate producer at the Walt Disney Company developing casual games.
