Incubation Director , Microsoft Rare Ltd

Louise O'Connor

With a background in classical animation and an aspiration to one day become part of a family-friendly Disney team, Louise joined Rare in 1999 as an animator and was thrown straight into the making of sweary, subversive adventure Conker’s Bad Fur Day.


A love of the humour and characters convinced Louise to stick around, beginning a career path that has led through animation and art roles for Kameo, Perfect Dark Zero and Kinect Sports, voice acting for Viva Piñata . Currently she is running Rare’s multi-discipline incubation team, tasked with generating the next big Rare game idea.
