A self-proclaimed "hoot/dog person," Brandon relies on his wits, his heart, and his humour in the workplace, making him a fabulous addition to a fabulous-er team!
Adam Ellis, Game Builder / Developer
Adam is our "everything" guy - and we mean everything. He builds all of our experiences, and is a valuable member of our game development team. If you play any of our games and see any of the secret passageways or "magic" moments in the games - Adam built that!
Devon Ellis, Set Designer
Devon comes to Improbable Escapes with a vast amount of design knowledge; she worked in film and television and helps makes all of our props and sets look fully immersive (and indestructible!). P.s. Devon and Adam are siblings - what a power duo.

Her passions include the wide spectrum of visual arts, and an ardent love of Japanese animation and culture. She’s happy to be a member of the team in the creative world of escape rooms.
Christian Milanovic, Shift Lead
Christian is our eccentric theatre and creativity enthusiast. Whenever a live actor is required for our games, chances are that you will seem him on the front lines. This job is perfect for him because he only wishes to make daily life more memorable, by giving it a healthy dose of whimsy.
Megan Shaw, Game Host
Outside of Improbable Escapes, you can find Megan backpacking, canoeing, or hiking as much as possible. She’s also a self-identified foodie and dog mom! She loves experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes, knitting and crochet, and frequent trips to the dog park. If you ask her anything about her passions, she’ll enthusiastically talk your ear off until you love them too!
Laura Brak, Game Host
Laura is a graduate of the University of Guelph, with a Bachelor's degree in geography and biology, and is currently in school to become a nurse. She can most often be found watching reruns of The Office and RuPaul's Drag Race, and has an unhealthy love for Cambodian and Thai food. Fun fact: she broke her leg playing roller derby and now has 10 screws in her left tibia!
Emily Kelly, Game Host
Emily is a high school student who spends her dreams fantasizing about going to Middle-earth. She's know as being an animal whisperer and a geek. She loves all things artsy, from drawing to painting to photography. She strives to be an actress and work in films and shows. She also has a passion for special effects makeup. When she has nothing better to do, she's usually solving riddles & puzzles!
