Over the last 15 years, I have served as one of the principal creative visionaries at Bungie. In addition to playing a foundational role in the creation and development of the Halo universe, now a 3 billion dollar franchise, I have also served a long-standing role in the leadership of the company as an owner, board member and project lead. I believe in upholding the highest quality bar for all aspects of production while maintaining a good working environment and a high quality of life for the team.
Time Magazine named me one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World” in 2005 and Halo has won numerous industry awards include the multiple prestigious “Outstanding Real Time Visuals in a Video Game” from the esteemed Visual Effects Society.

All this said, I really just enjoy creating something from nothing. It could be a giant game, a custom motorcycle, or a simple dinner for the family.
One of my favorite projects was building a custom chopper. It took about 8 months of assembling, cutting, painting and wiring, but eventually, I ended with a bike that cooks up the road and is super fun to ride.
