SR. DIRECTOR & EP, PROJECT L

Tom Cannon

Tom Cannon is the Senior Director and EP for Project L, Riot’s League of Legends fighting game. Tom and his brother Tony Cannon have been building the Project L team and leading development since before the game was first announced in 2019. In addition to leading Project L, Tom also leads Riot's Bay Area studio, based in Redwood City, CA. 

Tom and Tony both joined Riot in 2016 when Riot acquired their company Radiant Entertainment. The duo are also the founders of the EVO Championship Series and the rollback netcode technology, GGPO. 

Before studying Computer Science at Stanford, Tom was an aspiring artist. Now when he needs a tool for in-game art, he just writes it himself. A lifelong gamer, Tom’s love for the fighting game community began back in high school when he played far too many hours of Street Fighter II, maining Dhalsim and Chun Li.
