Sometimes you live when you should have died and so the game feels inherently fair because it’s not always relentlessly after you.
— Toru Iwatani, creator of PAC-MAN, in a conversation with me
 

I worked in video and computer game development on and off for over 20 years, and was involved in over 100 shipped titles and a few more that never quite made it out the door.

EMPLOYERS

Director of Product Development

Namco Networks America Inc., San Jose, CA 2004–2009

(also 2012-2013 as a Producer for Bandai Namco)

Namco creates games for everything from arcade cabinets to mobile phones and is best known for classic games like PAC-MAN and Galaga and modern ones like Tekken.

There I built the mobile production department from the ground up, both producing titles and hiring staff to manage a growing product line. I was responsible for working with Apple during the transition from feature phones to iPod/iOS/Smartphone gaming, and responsible for an annual budget which began at US$4mil and went up annually.

Producer + Chief Creative

Nuvo Studios, Inc., San Francisco 2000–2004

Nuvo Studios was a pioneer in mobile gaming, notable for having produced the first ports of games like Tetris and Bejeweled to mobile handsets.

There I worked closely with clients, engineers and artists to figure out how to produce games on short schedules and small budgets on extremely limited devices. Some of the clients I was privileged to work with included Jamdat, Sony Pictures, Disney, PopCap, THQ and Nokia.
