Game geek since I could speak! I prefer strategy and war games. I've done playtesting, proofreading, rules editing, counter graphics, development and design on several wargames including Wacht Am Rhein, The Cossacks Are Coming! (2nd Edition), War of 1812, When Dragons Fight, Lodz 1914: First Blitzkrieg, etc. I am especially proud of War of 1812 and When Dragons Fight as they were both nominated for CSR Awards and War of 1812 won!

I've been a professional video and computer game developer since 1991. I started as a QA tester at Lucasarts, then became a mission designer on X-Wing. Over time I became the gameplay and story lead for the rest of the X-Wing and TIE Fighter series.

I was lead designer on Blood Wake (fast action small boat combat for the Xbox that was a Platinum Series hit). I was a contributing designer on The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, and Saint's Row (another Platinum Series hit.)

My last commercial title was Death Jr. 2: Root of Evil, an action/platformer game for the PSP on which I was the audio lead and co-lead game designer. It is now available on the Wii.

I was a senior game designer at Destineer Studios (now Atomic Games) where I worked on a training simulation for the Intelligence Community and consulted on Six Days in Fallujah.

Since 2008 I have been teaching teaching game design, first at the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe, AZ, then at UC Santa Cruz and Cogswell Polytechnical College.

I am currently teaching at NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences and am the lead designer of Starfighter Inc by Impeller Studios.
