Tom Zhao was made in China, molded in rural Virginia and found his true calling in 2007. He decided to abandon his pursuit of medicine at the University of Virginia to chase his dream of becoming a concept artist. He moved across the country to attend the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California where he learned as much as he could from many wonderful teachers.

After graduating, he joined the talented team at Blur Studio where he cut his teeth and contributed designs to various films, animation, and game cinematics in almost every style and subject from gritty realistic environments to stylized characters. His projects included games like Bioshock Infinite and League of Legends as well as films like Thor: The Dark World and Man of Steel.  Since joining thatgamecompany, he is looking forward chasing his new dream of creating games with a focus on emotional impact and delivering unique experiences on the interactive medium.
