As a kid, I used to blow an entire Saturday off pumping quarters into arcade games. In college, I had an epiphany after playing hours and hours of continuous Marathon in the ArtCenter Mac lab - maybe I could get paid to do this. I redirected my major emphasis to interactive design, and after a few years at Microsoft and Sierra, I'm here at Bungie making money doing the two things my Dad said would never get me anywhere - art & video games. I live in a tiny rural 'no stoplight' town with my wife, Marcy and our kids. Frog blast the vent core.
