Favorite Quote:

“This is why I did this game ultimately, to begin with, is because I didn’t get into USC. I applied twice, didn’t get in. One of the things I’ve learned along the way if you want to create something, you really need that entrepreneurial spirit, to build something, to get things together, to keep it going, cause you want it to be self-sustaining.”
