Brian embodies fanatical passion about the design, development, and socialization of games. His natural talent to dissect, learn, adapt, combine, and reinvent the systems that make games, and the gamers who play them, have benefited us greatly.
He explored new territory, and fed his discoveries back into the levels and mechanics he built for the team. If you seek someone to fearlessly blaze a trail into the future of gaming on your behalf, hitch your wagon to Brian, and prepare to be amazed at how quickly he can cover ground.
Senior Game Designer
Machine Zone Inc.
Brian is an extremely passionate and driven designer. After jumping straight into the Design trenches of Age of Empires Online (AOEO), he immediately undertook major responsibilities that required immediate mastery of new skills and tools.
Brian met such high demands through dedication, passion, and plain hard work.
His ability to receive and act upon constructive criticism led to the contribution and shipping of dozens of high-quality missions in AOEO.
Brian is an incredibly dedicated, hard-working individual who puts a profound level of detail and quality into his work. One thing I admire about him is his consideration for the player at the other end of the controller. It may sound commonplace for designers, but I have found not all designers remember this.
He dedicates himself to the project and the industry like no one I know, and he works hard to find the "fun", which is invaluable.
