Introduction I'm an 18 year game industry veteran. I began my gig as a video game Art Director in 2000 after founding Big Huge Games in Baltimore, Maryland. At Big Huge I provided artistic leadership for a team of over 100 game developers—including a 26-person art department. Some of the studio’s most successful games include Rise of Nations and Rise of Legends, of which the latter received Gamespy’s 2006 Special Achievement in Art Direction Award and has been lauded by the press as “A playable piece of art…” (Game Revolution) and “… the best-looking RTS I’ve ever played” (PC Gamer). In 2010 I made the jump to social game development where I served as Art Director for Zynga East. During that time I worked on FrontierVille as well as CityVille 2. I've spoken at GDC on multiple occasions and have also delivered the keynote address at SCAD's annual Game Developer eXchange conference. In January of 2013 I moved on from Zynga to explore new opportunities. Currently I'm working as a consultant with Moore College of Art on their upcoming game program.
