Gunn currently serves as CEO of Lightning Platform, which has developed software for entrepreneurs. Lightning derived from Social Game Universe, for which Gunn was credited as lead game designer.

In 2009, Gunn founded Social Game Universe in Toronto, Canada, with the stated goal of creating a network of interconnected small casual games such as Hollywood Tycoon that in aggregate would form a digital universe of players interacting while playing diverse games.
In 2013, LightningPlatform / Lightning Ignite was spun out of Social Game Universe, and Gunn became CEO of the new company.
Several innovative digital applications have been created with Lightning, including pioneering second screen applications for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television shows Over the Rainbow and Battle of the Blades.
