CEO, Zero G Games, Inc.

Zero G Games was founded during the internet web browser gaming craze. Having recently left Electronic Arts, we found ourselves with an emerging market, and very few rushing in to dominate. Zero G ported more MMO casual gaming platforms than any other company grossing over $6 million. Our clients included EA's Pogo.com, Yahoo! Games, Atari, Ty Toys, Disney, Marvel, LL Cool J, iWin and many more. We expanded into two offices in both Los Angeles and Costa Mesa, CA. Our staff expanded to over 30 employees not including outside game development houses we supported. My personal role was that of CEO and CTO. I handled virtually all of the negotiations, and contributed a significant portion of project overall architecture and design.

Director, Electronic Arts

My work at Electronic Arts actually started in 1993 where I became a database programmer for internal QA in the High Score division under Michael Pole. I quickly added my contribution to game testing and eventually design. I eventually was hired full-time to lead a group of web developers, and quickly rose to Director within the year managing a 55-man team and two additional departments of editorial and design for EA.com. As Director, I was able to contribute the overall architecture for EA.com that was being built into a $300 million online gaming platform. During that time, I negotiated several deals between AOL, Pepsi, and other fortune 1000 partners that wanted to use EA as a cross-promotional platform for their products. I was also able to leverage my friendship with Steve Jobs to bring Apple and EA together, which resulted in a two-year negotiation. I received the first dotcom award for Management. Before my exit in 2002, I reengineered the web department and increased overall revenue from online sales from $800k annually to over $3 million annually. I also worked on a number of individual game franchises including several of the first MMOs in history including Ultimate Online, Sim City Online, Motor City Online, and Earth and Beyond.
