Zack Simpson’s interest in interactivity was inherited from his mother who was a children’s playground designer. He started playing video games as soon as there were such things and started programming at the age of 10. He dropped out of high-school at 17 to become a full-time software engineer. In 1991 he join Origin/Electronic Arts and left there in 1995 as the Director of Technology and later returned as a Research Fellow. In 1995 he co-founded Titanic Entertainment which hit an iceberg after its first game. In 1997 he abandoned the game industry and now creates interactive installation artwork, travels the world, and teaches math. Zack founded Mine-Control with several of his friends.
