I have been working professionally as a programmer both inside and outside the games industry since the early 1990's. I am currently employed at Electronic Arts.
When it comes to programming, I have programmed professionally for FPGA/DSP boards, PalmOS, WinCE, Nindendo DS, DSi, 3DS, PS2, PS3, XBox, X360, and of course PC. I've also developed on unreleased hardware for several systems, including pre-release versions of some of the hardware above. I've also dabbled non-professionally in programming for lots of other systems, including various cell phones and Android.
I have been a contributing editor to multiple books, although I've never written one myself. I've written chapters, edited entire books, developed useful layouts, formatted everything in various systems ranging from MS Word to LaTeX; I've spent many hours proofreading, and even helped get a few books to the printer, but never had the need to publish my own.
I attended graduate school at Brigham Young University, and undergraduate school at Weber State University, where I graduated cum laude with university and departmental honors.
I can play piano reasonably well, and have played organ and violin. I occasionally relax by playing some Haydn, Mozart, or Beethoven. If I'm in a really quirky mood you might hear some Chopin. For some reason I now cringe when I hear 7ths and 9ths, and I blame him for that. Personally. Other times I will just play show tunes and my wife will sing along.
In addition to programming and music, I love teaching, I love small animals (I have several birds), and I love goofing off with my kids.
