Developer Biography

Let's see... Well, I spent my formative years in a small town in Indiana... And in case you are wondering, it was about as bad as it sounds... At anyrate, I spent most, if not all, of these years immersed in all things geeky - games most of all. I remember those times well, the 8-bit Nintendo ruled my world, and I was master of all things that scrolled sideways.

I guess I owe my career to the fact that my need for new games so outstripped my ability to pay for new games, that I was left with with little choice - I had to make them myself.

In college I accidently took the most round about path into the industry that I could. A little tired of coding at that time, I decided to major in something completely useless - film... Of course, like any good college student, I soon changed to something equally as useless, and ended up with a degree in Psychology. After college, I was struck with the horrible realization that I needed a job, as I was toiling away at everything from marketing gigs to database programming, I realized where I belonged. So I focused, dusted off the C++ coding skills, and went to work, eventually landing here at Ritual.
