"Originally born in Hawaii while his father was stationed in the Navy, his family moved shortly thereafter to a small town in Iowa. After completing college at the U of I, he made the “career move” to San Francisco to try and make games for a living. His friends laughed at him in disbelief and his parents cried…but now he works at Bungie and plans to help them in their bid for world domination. Now they laugh and cry for different reasons."
