Victor Sverdlin – Full Time Nerd, Part Time Geek

Hi, I'm Victor Sverdlin

Seasoned Product Manager

I am a seasoned product manager with eighteen years of diverse technical experience across a variety of fields. Everything from IT support & sales, Software development, Hardware development, Game Development, Network security, Network infrastructure, Vendor management, Virtual systems and various Cloud technologies. In my heart however, I will always be a Agile junkie with an unhealthy addiction to KANBAN and a unnatural love of SCRUM.

Digital Media: Game Production & Programming, Bachelor's

University of Central Florida Graduation 2013

Tabletop Roleplaying Games(Dungeons & Dragons, Exalted, Shadowrun, etc,etc,etc). I've been a game master for almost 25 years leading groups of 5-8 individuals through epic adventures.

Real-Time Strategy Games(Command & Conquer, WarCraft I, II & III, StarCraft I & II, Battlefleet Gothic I & II, etc, etc) I love wracking my brain on a split second timer.

4x Turn-Based Strategy Games(Civilization Series, Endless Space, Age of Wonders Series) Nothing beats having to plan thirty-three moves ahead only to find out move nineteen was a dud.


Science Fiction, But it must be terrible. I mean horrible, absolutely terrible with no chance of being in anyway something that should be considered literature.

Fantasy, See above, but with comedy. It must have a single character in which terrible things routinely occur only for them to continually survive.

Comic Books: DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, Web Comics and independent publishers. The graphic medium is amazing and can tell epic tales with terrible dialogue.


Metal, Glorious Metal. The one true music to rule them all. I'm not big on this new scream and growling trend that has hit the scene. Give me heavy bass and epic power ballads.

Classic Hard Rock, Rock ain't what it used to be, that's for sure. Gone are the guitar riffs, the drum solos, and the minutes long breakouts in the middle of a song. I need music that will get my heart moving, not my mind groaning.
