Developer Biography

Brian started testing games for EA in the summer of 1999. After acting as the QA Lead on a couple of Hunting titles he went to work for MS games in the Connectivity Department.

In December of 2000, he began testing at Amaze Entertainment where he quickly rose to a lead position. Amaze offered him the chance to try his hand at Level Design, Scripting, and even some minor Voice Overs. After 4 years at Amaze Brian took a hiatus to return to school.

In late 2005, Brian returned to Griptonite Games (formerly Amaze Entertainment) in the Associate Producer role and is now in the Producer position. Working on everything from large movie licenses (Pirates of the Caribbean, Iron Man 2) to smaller, original IP (Chimps Ahoy for iPhone) he is enjoying everything that the Producer hat offers in the creative world of games.
