I’ve been a gamer for over 30 years Over the years, I’ve owned and played videogames on the following systems: a Odyssey System; an Apple IIe computer, an Atari 2600; a Nintendo Entertainment System (NES); a Nintendo Gameboy; a Sega Master System; a Super Nintendo Entertainment System; a Sega Genesis; a PlayStation (PSOne); a Sega Dreamcast; a PlayStation 2 (PS2); a Xbox; a Nintendo DS; a PlayStation Portable (PSP); numerous PC computers; a Xbox 360; a PlayStation 3 (PS3); and a Nintendo Wii. As far as I can tell, these systems collectively span through at least six of the seven generations of home gaming systems.
I’ve worked in the videogame industry. In or around 1987, I worked for a shop that rented video games. (Note that this video game rental service long preceded GameFly’s and Blockbuster’s services.) In or around 1988, I worked as a game counselor for Hudson Soft, a videogame manufacturer. In around 1996, I worked for a company called DFC Intelligence as a research assistant. I assisted in creating a report projecting how the market for Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPG) would expand once these games introduced graphical interfaces as opposed to text-only interfaces. (At the time, the only MMORPGs on the market were text-based. In effect, we forecasted the market for graphic-intensive MMORPGs, such as the EverQuest and World of Warcraft series.)
I also have a background in both law and economics. I received an undergraduate degree in Management Science (with an emphasis in econometrics). I received a JD and an MBA from Santa Clara University. I’ve been an intellectual property law and business law litigator for a decade, specializing in trade secret, patent, copyright, trademark, business and contract law. I am currently a partner at Banie & Ishimoto LLP, a boutique litigation law firm. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
