What do you do?

For the past 30 years, I’ve worked as a video game producer and designer. It’s been an amazing career, preceded by shorter careers in broadcasting and windsurfing. In the most recent 5 years, I’ve focused more outward into wild spaces and new communities, while keeping up with current gaming trends. It’s an ongoing balancing act, one that’s pretty diametrically opposed and confuses most of my friends and colleagues.

What's a current goal you are working towards?

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that adaptability is a requirement. A life’s road of many forks has trained me well in this skill. My top priority goal this year and next is keeping myself and my family safe and healthy. Secondary goals include making more content for my YouTube channel, more collaboration on making great games, and advancing my skills in expressing myself musically and artistically.

What are you currently learning to do?

My ongoing quest to become a good guitar player continues, now being a bit muddled with learning more about midi keyboards and audio production. In the theme of being interested in a plethora of things, I’ve also been improving my gardening skills for the past few years.

What's a quote that inspires you?

"We all have ability.
The difference is how we use it"
