Interview with “Behind the Screen”
I recently had the opportunity to sit down with my friend Kristen Fuller on her podcast, Behind the Screen, to talk about my least favorite subject: me! In the two-and-a-half-hour conversation that followed, we discussed my career in games, from my early days as a video game journalist, through my time at BioWare (yay!) and Red 5 Studios (not so yay!), to the mental breakdown I had after my time at Red 5 Studios (very not yay!), and my “second career” as a freelance writer and video game designer.
I’ve never found it easy to talk about myself, which is why I do it so infrequently. But when Kristen, whom I have known and considered one of my closest friends since we worked on Star Wars: The Old Republic together, asked me to be on her podcast to talk about my life and career, I couldn’t bring myself to say no.
If y’all enjoyed this back and forth, I encourage y’all to check out her podcast, Behind the Screen. She and her co-host, Frank Sanchez (another friend), interview interesting people in and around the video game industry. Each interview subject has their own fascinating story to tell, and it’s not just me shilling for my friends when I say that they have put together a great show.
