How did you get your job at DICE?

I spent several years in university working on Battlefield mods, after I built up a portfolio, one of my contacts from the modding community suggested I apply to DICE. So 6 months after university I moved from my childhood home in Saint Louis, Missouri overseas to Stockholm Sweden. It was my first ever plane flight, and I’ve been living here for the past 8 years.

Which question is the most common one about your job as a game dev?

“How did you get your job?” Or if a Swedish man is asking: “Do you work on Battlefield?”

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

Battlefield Bad Company 2. It’s just all around a great game and I’m still really proud to have worked on it.

Which is you all-time favorite game?

Civilization is my goto game, I play it on easy and take over the world every time.

Best Stockholm winter tip:

Go to Thailand! If you can’t, then get a wake up light alarm clock, it really does wonders for the winter moods.
