Dave Baranec

Principal Programmer

Dave has been at Volition since 1997, and having spent 4 years at the University of Illinois prior to that, is coming dangerously close to having lived half his life in Champaign. Dave has watched Volition grow from ~20 people to nearly 150, and it shows no signs of stopping any time soon. He feels weird being a fossil at 29 years old.

When not pacing around his house waiting for Starcraft 2 to come out, he can be found mowing his weeds and crushing the local $150/$300 Hold `Em games in the greater Champaign area.  He is extremely proud that his younger brother is now attending the U of I this fall.
