Laura Ware

Studio: Epic Games

Notable Games: Gears of War: Judgement

Weird Hobby: Dressage

Games are about taking control over something you don't really have control over, kind of like riding a horse. Laura Ware is a person who can recognize that connection. Having ridden her horse for the past three years, she's been riding dressage, a form of Horseback riding that's like "ballet on horseback".

As a QA tester, she's used to handling situations when things go wrong, but when her steed came down with a case of colic, she thought she might lose her faithful companion forever. Thankfully the best of care was available and within 48 hours they were able to get back to riding. She tells me "We hope to start showing locally again in March, when the show season starts back up."
