I have been fortunate to have been making digital entertainment for more than twenty-five years, building teams and studios, designing games, managing products "hands-on" from initial concept through funding, development and live operation. I recently started up my own businesses, prior to which I spent almost 10 years at the World's #1 videogame company, Electronic Arts; I was a VP in the mobile group, General Manager of their Salt Lake and Raleigh/Durham development & production studios, and Executive Producer of many hit games for EA and EA SPORTS.
As a practicing game development executive, I make my expertise and experience available on a consulting basis too - I'm an expert trouble-shooter of software products, an expert in game development process and practice, team building and management, design, brands wanting a digital strategy and more. I have helped many non-gaming brands and companies also with advice on product strategy and mobile strategy.
If you need some help in any of these areas, please do get in contact.
The rest of this site details my career, projects I have worked on, random thoughts and more as I get time!
