2016 Best Use of Streaming- tied with Blizzard and Riot
I was born and raised in Santa Monica California...
Although I've spent nearly two decades in the video game industry, my love of games occurred nearly 37 years ago (where I stole quarters to play those addictive Arcade games in the local Ice Cream shop. Yes I got caught.).
In 1980, I won my very first game design award at the Boys Club Regional Game Design competition. My creation was a PVP Pinball Layout with two gutters and four flippers, a head to head design, set over a battling Enterprise and a Klingon War-bird.
I am an entertainer, story teller at heart and ever craftsman of our art.
