Producer

What is the weirdest job you've ever had?

Right after my college, I held multiple part-time jobs. One of them was for a professor who was as brilliant in his craft as he was poor with computers. Among my responsibilities was to print his email and transcribe taped recordings that he would make for me, usually books chapters and email correspondence. Sometimes he would leave the recorder on while he ate his lunch.

What is your favorite all-time game?

Pandemic. It's a cooperative board game where you work together with the other players to try and eradicate diseases spreading throughout the world. I used to play it all the time.

What games are you playing right now?

I'm on a bit of a gaming hiatus right now. But I attempt the NY Times crossword puzzle a couple times a week.

What motivated you to begin working in the game industry?

Most of my friends worked in the industry or were studying to do so. Their passion must have rubbed off on me.
