I baited and tossed lobster traps into the ocean off the coast of California. Actually that sounds more glamorous than the reality of that job, as I spent the first half of the summer painting the buoys and cages for the trap, then the last week we rode around on a boat and dropped the traps into the ocean.

I wrote a letter to Nintendo as a young boy, outlining an idea I had for a new game. It was based off my little brother always using his Nintendo character toys and pinning them against one another in wrestling matches. After writing them a huge detailed synopsis of what I thought would be an amazing game called Mario wrestling, they promptly wrote me a denial letter. Two years later, Super Smash Bros came out and I couldn’t believe it.
