I went to MIT. My dormitory was New House II. My undergraduate thesis, Thesis of Terror, was published as the 8-bit Atari game Dandy, and served as the basis for the arcade game Gauntlet. It's a four-player top-down dungeon exploration game. There is a program called MAME that lets you play Gauntlet and many other old arcade games.
I currently live in Seattle, Washington.
