Work at CIG

He met with Chris Roberts in August 2010 having initial world building conversations which led to the Time Capsules the month before Gamescon.[3][4]

He was one of the founding members of CIG in 2012.[5][6]

Other Works

He wanted to be in the FBI but in high school decided to go into movies.[4]

He was a location sound mixed in New York on very low budget movies.[4]

In part in order to focus on scipt writing he moved out to LA, where he was a QA localisation tester at Activision working on Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Call of Duty: United Offensive, Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg True Crime, and the Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Doom 3 expansion during the night while interning for Ascendant Pictures during the day in 2002.[3][4] He was director assistant on the Outlander movie where he met Chris Roberts[5] and Ryan Church and did a lot of freelance movie stuff.[4] During his free time he was working on screenplays[4]

Afterwards he decided to focus on his script writing and worked on one for a while with Chris Roberts.[4]


  • Since the universe of Star Citizen took elements from Ancient Rome, he reread old textbooks about that period as well as talks about the classics (Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Star Wars, Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Star Trek, Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Ringworld, Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Foundation, etc.) He has always been a fan of Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Joss Whedon so he rewatched Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Firefly which hardly counts as 'work'.[3]
  • He grew up as a gamer but his family always seemed to have the 'other systems'. They didn't have Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Atari but the Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Intellivision. They didn't have a Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Commodore 64 but Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Epson Equity II PC. So until PC really caught on, they never really had the popular games in the house. He kept playing games through high school but fell off a bit after college as he was broke and couldn't afford the systems.[3]
  • Around 2010, he started playing games again but have slowed down. Recently, He has been watching his roommate work his way through Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Skyrim which has been fun. He played through Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Mass Effect 2 in 2012, so he jumped on that bandwagon relatively late.[3]
