Michael Cranford has been a software engineer for more than 35 years. He began developing games while studying architecture at UC Berkeley in the early 80s, doing Atari and Sega ports for a software development house in the San Francisco south bay. He reconnected with his high school friend and D&D cohort Brian Fargo, who had started a game development company back in Orange County. In the years since, Cranford has focused on application development in the corporate sector, emphasizing web application development since the mid-90s. His recent work focuses on natural language interfaces, and he has a new business venture called Days Fly, developing games for Amazon Alexa and Google Home devices. Cranford has degrees in philosophy, theology, and ethics, including a Ph.D. in Religion and Social Ethics from USC.
