TIMELINE OF MY JOURNEY.
Consultant + Private Training
When the commentating position ended in Poland I moved back home to California and quickly took up a position developing and delivering a comprehensive 14 week Cybersecurity Red Team training program for public sector internal red teams as well as performing security assessments.
Game and Technology
Teaching Software + Technology
While working on the game for a living I found myself wanting to teach others again and started classes at a local maker space to teach kids how to make games. I also co-hosted a series of popular podcasts on Game Design. I helped teach and develop for a local game dev schoo, Ameon. Through my passion for pushing technology at this maker space I also ended up partnering with Intel as an evangelist and workshop instructor for some of their emerging technologies in IoT and Camera Vision.
Technical Training Developer
Fast forward many years and lots of game/app development and computer science classes later I ended up working at Apple as a phone tech. Quickly promoted and joining a brand new division to support the iLife/iWork products, I found myself compelled to develop the training for the department for new agents as there wasn’t any at the time. There I learned I had a knack for teaching and training others, delivering 13 classes of week long training. After multiple Senior Director Awards, bonuses and raises I eventually hit the ceiling and moved on to an IT job.
Blockchain game design
Lately I’ve also been following my passion for blockchain technology and game design into the NFT blockchain game space and the metaverse. I am an early adopter of metaverse technology going back to building virtual office space in Active Worlds back in the late 1990s. I provide consulting for multiple blockchain game projects from game design to economy design.
VR Blockchain Consultant
While doing various bits of contract work developing games and apps I fell in love with a newly released game, Rainbow Six: Siege. My excitement and understanding of the game was compelling enough to land me in the position of professional eSports commentator on Ubisoft’s newly formed eSports league for the game for the next 4 years. During my time living in Poland commentating, I found myself wanting to return to some of my youthful hacking roots and dived into offensive cybersecurity. I also kept my technical edge sharp developing virtual reality games for multiple platforms, and teaching classes on how to write blockchain smart contracts on Ethereum.
Cutting Edge Game Developer
IT, HTML5 Programmer
During my time in IT I found myself compelled back towards game design again and began diving deeper into design and gamification psychology. Always one to push for the cutting edge I found myself intrigued by the possibilities of newly forming HTML5 technology and developed a number of projects for bay area clients while also running, attending and winning game jams for fun. Through these game jams I found an opportunity at a local game company and quickly became lead developer, and eventually lead designer on a game that was great.
Game & App Development
Old School Early Days
Made my own games and apps using QBasic on a hand me down orange monochrome 286 running old Dos 3.0. Sold my first game, a text adventure I made to a fellow high school student for $5 on a 5 ¼” floppy disk.
