A creative from a young age; firstly a self-taught fine artist with the goal of one day working in the film industry, this was after being inspired by the release of Star Wars in the 1970’s.
I then put my artistic dreams on hold to pursue a career in electrical engineering, while still working as a self-employed artist and later a CAD operator. In 1993 Chris Roberts and Richard Garriott introduced me to the game industry in Austin Texas and since then I haven't looked back. I have an extensive resume, having created games for some of the largest game companies in the world, including: EA, LucasArts/Film, Pandemic, THQ, Microsoft, Psygnosis, Warthog, Origin and Totally Games.
To date I’ve completed eighteen games; working in England then the United States, Canada, Australia and Singapore. I eventually had the privilege of working for Mr. George Lucas in 2002 building spacecraft for Star Wars. During this time I also helped Doug Chiang to make his trailers for Robota (Reign of the Machines)
I am currently taking a year out to teach in Singapore, I’ve been teaching students at both SAE and DIGIPEN.
The DIGIPEN Masters Degree is a special program for UBISOFT students in Singapore, financed by the Singapore Government and credited by the WDA; I have been heading this program.
