Developer Biography

Starting in the video game industry back in 1999, Chris began working with Looking Glass Studios. His first project was as a tester on the Nintendo 64 game Destruction Derby. Chris later moved into design work for a planned Dreamcast title, but Looking Glass Studios went out of business shortly after his move to Design.

A few months later, Chris began working for Microsoft, first as a tester, then as Test Lead, and has since worked for 12 years as a Software Engineer on titles such as Crimson Skies, Oni (for which he went to Bungie in San Jose), Halo, Blinx the Time Sweeper, Conker, Phantasy Star Online (SEGA), Grabbed by the Ghoulies, Conker: Live & Reloaded, Kameo: Elements of Power, Viva Pinata, Viva Pinata: Party Animals, Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Kinect Sports, Gears of War 3, and Ryse: Son of Rome. He has worked on titles for Nintendo 64, PC, Playstation 2, Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One and continues to work on upcoming AAA core gamer Xbox projects.

Currently employed with Microsoft Game Studios, Chris works on the Grizzlies Test Team in the Global Test Engineering Team (GTE) as a Senior Test Lead that focus on AAA titles in the "Core Gamers" category. He has a B.S. in Business Administration and picked up his first video game in 1979.
