He started making games while studying playwriting at Pomona College in Claremont, California.

Near the end of the 1970s he was hired by Mattel to work on games for the new Intellvision console to compete against the Atari 2600. He developed the first sim game (Intellivision Utopia, 1982). After Mattel closed the Intellivision division, he became a producer at Electronic Arts.

He created the first original play-by-email game (Quantum Space for AOL, 1989). Don co-designed Computer Game Hall of Fame title Earl Weaver Baseball (1987), and the first massively multiplayer online graphic adventure, Neverwinter Nights for AOL (1990).
