After spending a large amount of time in my teens playing with the mod tools of games like Quake, Doom, and Half-life I entered the industry in 2001 as a Quality Assurance tester for Activision in southern California. After five years I got a chance to work on Call of Duty 3 as a junior tester and I’ve been growing and learning since. I enjoy the satisfaction of making fun and interesting events and love watching as people become quiet and focused from playing them. Other than being an avid gamer, I love to read, grow my own food, and cook/BBQ.
