Steve has been working with Apple, PC and Unix system computers ever since.He started working with Home Automation and Home Theater systems in 1999, and his extensive knowledge of electronics has lead to the creation of the high tech outdoor equipment that makes up the backbone of GenZplay’s unique designs.

Alex, our CPO, Chief Play Officer, routinely scrutinizes our work for better and more enjoyable ways to play the GenZplay games. He brings to the table a group of friends, and beta testers, that make building these apps most enjoyable.
Dr. Adam Karns, MD, is a practicing internal medicine doctor in Beverly Hills since 1994.
