He's been a game developer hobbiest for 6 or 7 years and just recently, in the last couple years has been trying to make some supplemental income doing game development.


His website can be found at www.FarseerGames.com. There you will find 3-4 Silverlight games he's created and a developer blog. Currently Jeff is working on a game called Krashlander for the Windows Phone 7 and hopes to have it ready on or near the phone's launch date.

He teamed up with Joel in 2009 and they've been working together to build games for XBLIG ever since.
