Our core team is made up of four friends from the Albany High Class of 2018 (Go Cougars!)

Production Manager

Sam DuBois, founder of Albany Haunt Productions, is a BFA Technical Direction & Experience Design student at CalArts where he is learning to manage teams, budgets, and designs in order to create the next generation of entertainment.

Sam has written much of the story and scripts while managing logistics and securing funds to make The Avenue Adventure possible.


Kai Girard

Artistic Director

Kai Girard is a technical theater major at Cal State Long Beach and enthusiast for all forms of art. When not working on his next creative endeavor he can be found streaming movies or visiting nature.

He worked on the story development for The Avenue Adventure as well as creating many of the graphics. He hopes that The Avenue Adventure will inspire people to seek out new experiences.

Digital Lead

Joey Rees-Hill is a computer science major at Oberlin College, and a member of the improv troupe Sunshine Scouts. When he's at college, he misses Gordo Taqueria, as well as the hills in and around Albany.

He created several software tools for the Avenue Adventure, as well as a few pieces of writing and other miscellaneous work. He's excited to see the game play out.

Liam Tegland

Content Czar

Liam Tegland is a biochemistry major at UC Davis and an alumnus of the now-legendary Human Contact Club. In his free time he enjoys word games and cow tipping.

Liam has been brought onto the project as a freelance editor and jack-of-all-trades. He has worked to refine the excellent body of work assembled by the other members of the team as well as contributing some original material.
