In 2020 he was promoted to CEO of IO and has also taken on the duties of Art Director.

Haley was introduced to the world of tabletop role-playing games during her high school years and greatly enjoyed the creative story aspects of the games. Story writing had been her passion since a young age which lead her to pursuing an English degree with minors in Game Studies and Design. Before working with the IO team, Haley had been freelancing writing and editing for around a year. She loves creating stories and enjoys the opportunity to do so for Other Earths. Haley is also directing content releases for the IO Patreon.
Sylvan received her Bachelor of Arts in English with a minor in creative writing at the University of Montevallo, Alabama, and a Master of Arts degree in English Literature at the University of Nevada, Reno. During her graduate studies, she worked as an editorial assistant at the University of Nevada Press. Most of her childhood was spent sitting on the floor around a crowded coffee table full of mismatched dice and scribbled on or frayed character sheets, with her brothers and sisters, her mother as a Dungeon Master, and numerous years-long RPG campaigns that claimed the lives of many beloved characters. She has spent her entire life writing creatively and has had fantasy works published since age 14.
