Bio

I've been involved with new media and technology since my wife, Annie, and I co-founded the world's first public-access microcomputer center in 1977. Marin Computer Center was a prototype for bringing new technology to the public. I'm now the Technology Director for NewsTrust.net, and I manage web and technical development aspects of the project. I co-authored the books Computer Animation Primer, Armchair BASIC, and Pascal Primer, and then in 1982 became one of the founding members of LucasArts. During my 10 year there, I was the designer, project leader, and one of the programmers for the games Rescue on Fractalus!, Labyrinth, Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure. I also worked on Maniac Mansion as the primary script programmer. In 1996, I joined LiveWorld Inc/Talk City, an Internet community provider, as their Dir of Kids and Entertainment Programming. During my four years at the company, I produced The InSite, a site for teen empowerment, and several online chat games. In 2001, I returned to immersive gaming at Xulu, producing their motion simulator project. Then I produced and designed a prototype of an educational game for Learning Friends under a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. More recently I co-designed and implemented Web sites for authors David McCullough, Terry Gamble, and Annie Fox, The Ayrshire Foundation, Alaska Federation of Natives and Seadrift Realty, all with graphic designer Daniel Will-Harris. When not playing with computers I enjoy science fiction, good films, photography, video making, and taking long walks with Annie through the hills of Marin County, CA. We have two grown kids.
