In his own words: I've worked at CodeWeavers for nearly 9 years. I have an easy time remembering this: I changed jobs shortly after Michael Jackson died. Programming was always a hobby for me when I was growing up. I designed and wrote websites for high school garage bands, and created the first halves of countless video games. The games I'm most proud of were two homebrew games for the PlayStation Portable that I wrote in my last year of high school, one of which won me a prize in a contest.
Since getting a job as a programmer, it's no longer fun for me as a hobby. These days I'm into hand tool woodworking, cheesemaking, cooking, beer-making, and, of course, video games.
