He first gained industry experience at Rainbird Software[1], a sister company of Firebird Software, both owned by Telecomsoft[2], a division of British Telecomwhere he localized computer game software for the american market.

In 1988 he moved to Mediagenic where he served as a producer for several computer titles, including Ghostbusters II. He also worked as a producer in Tongue of the Fatman shortly before the company went bankrupt.
