Co-Founder and Director of Technology
John’s game programming career began around age six, sitting on the living room floor with a spiral-bound VIC-20 manual. After graduating from the University of Connecticut in 1997, John joined Ensemble Studios in time to help launch Age of Empires. John worked on Age of Empires II, Age of Mythology, Age of Empires III, and Halo Wars — not to mention some cool projects that never saw the light of day. John joined many fellow Ensemble alumni in starting Robot Entertainment. As a Senior Programmer at Robot, John worked on Age of Empires Online, Orcs Must Die!, and Hero Academy.
