    Early Life

    Before founding Insomniac Games in 1994 Ted Price worked as a controller (the head of finance and accounting) for a medical company. However after a couple of years in the job he opted for a career change in the video game industry and in 1994 Insomniac Games was born. 
    Price worked alongside brothers Alex and Brian Hastings to release Insomniacs first game, Disruptor, which was for the PlayStation and saw release in November 1996. The game received critical success and thus helped secure Ted Price and his fledging companies name within the industry allowing them to go on and create such well known franchises as Spyro the Dragon, Ratchet & Clank and later the Resistance series.

    Insomniac Games

    As CEO and President of Insomniac Games his role often requires his attention on handling the day-to-day affairs involved with running the business. As well as this Price's job involves ensuring future projects for the company to work on. While also overseeing current projects the company is working on by taking a hands on approach with designs and ideas and contributing to them.
    Price's attention to corporate strategies and the well being of his employees has lead to Insomniac Games being included among the top five in the annual rankings for 50 "Best Companies to Work for in America" for three years in a row. This is due in large part to the many benefits provided which range from yoga, massage therapies, freely provided catering, video game tournaments and much more. All of which are provided due, in large part, to the leadership of Ted Price in his role as CEO & President of the independent development studio.

    Interactive Entertainment Activism

    In addition to his role as the head of Insomniac Games. Price is also Vice Chairman (formerly Chairman) of the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, a non-profit organisation that tries to promote awareness of the artistic and scientific qualities to be found in interactive entertainment aka video games.

    He is said to live in Burbank, CA with his wife and children. Price also holds a degree in English which he earned while attending Princeton University.
