Developer Biography

Like a guest at the dinner party in Bunuel’s “The Exterminating Angel,” Bill Van Buren signed on for a short stint to help ship Half-Life and found himself unable to leave. In 2003, his position is Producer/ Designer with Valve.

Bill’s pre-Valve experience includes positions at Starwave and Microsoft where he was responsible for art and design direction, production management, and creating art, animation, and the odd bit of music.
