Rob Jagnow founded Lazy 8 Studios in 2008. While finishing his Ph.D. at MIT, Rob got his start in game development by working on flight simulators for companies in Switzerland and Japan. He worked on a variety of projects with Demiurge Studios, Gearbox, Kaos, EA, WXP and Irrational before deciding to take a chance on his own in the casual game industry. Puzzle games had always been Rob's passion and Cogs was brewing in his mind for years before he finally had an opportunity to make the game a reality. The success of Cogs created many opportunities for the company, allowing for things like the high-risk, experimental game Extrasolar to happen. Following his time with Lazy 8 Studios, Rob has worked at Google, pioneering new interaction models for virtual reality and augmented reality.
