Tell us about yourself.

I graduated from Gustavus in 2001 with a degree in Computer Science. I am currently working at Activision / Raven Software doing software engineering  and data analysis for Call of Duty Online.

How did the MCS department help you get where you are today?

Experiences with databases/SQL, graphics, vector mechanics, AI, and advanced math at Gustavus have all been very influential in what I’ve done since then.

What is your favorite memory or memories of the MCS department?

Working on projects for Hvidsten’s Computer Graphics class, and the team homework in Wolfe’s AI class.
