It is this strong desire to continue supporting the military and his fellow Veterans that led him to seek a career in VA.

Flynn holds a master’s degree in Game Design and Production from Full Sail University. Immediately following graduation he designed and produced games for a serious game company then worked for the Army developing game scenarios for tactical training.
