That is quite a career!

How did you get started in the video game industry?

I see you have worked on a lot of licensed Marvel and Star Wars games. Were you told what you could or could not do with some of the characters or did you have freedom to do what you wanted? Also were you a fan of the comics and movies?

Do you have a favorite game that you were involved with?

Was it hard adapting to the changing hardware over the years?

When you first started did you ever think that the video game industry would become as big as it has and still be going strong all these years later?

When you're not working on games what are some of your favorites to play?

1.  How much freedom did you have when developing games for established franchises like those based on Marvel characters or Star Wars? 

2.  You've developed games for various systems, from PC to consoles.  What is your preferred platform to make games for?

3. What differences did you face when programming the same game for competing consoles like the SNES and the Genesis?

4.  Are you a gamer yourself?  Do you own any retro systems?  Modern systems?

5.  How different has been to work in the gaming industry through the years? 
Going to the final frontier, gaming...
