''''Favorite Quote:' "No one will every pay you to play computer games all day long! Get outside!" - My Mom

Biggest Career Moment: Watching how enamored my friend Nick Uchida was with playing Myth(I&II) and Bungie games.


Games are where my career in computers started. I had an old Apple IIC that my brother and I broke several keys on the keyboard playing Olympic Decathlon(sorry Mom!). This was a start but computers were still a passive interest until a family friend of ours gave us a 286. I was just impressed when he did not have to put a disk in the drive when he turned it on. Then he sent me Wing Commander and the rest is history. I love what I do!
