Who are you and what’s your business?
My name is Ozhan “Oz” Maker, I’ve been in gaming hardware product development for 17 years and currently, I’m the General Manager of Victrix Pro, a premium esports hardware brand, engineering/development outfit based in San Diego. Victrix is a company within a company, the larger being PDP (Performance Designed Products). Our first product, Victrix Pro AF ANC, is an aviation-grade noise-canceling gaming headset that’s developed for the tournament pro’s needs. After three years in development, it’s about to debut on June 9 with additional esports products coming later this year, and more lined up in the next 2-3 years.
