My road in life has taken me all over.
Born and raised in Northern California, but moved to Los Angeles when he was 15.
His father, Nolan Bushnell, created Atari and pioneered the modern video game industry—says that he and his 7 siblings were always surrounded by games and grew up with an appreciation for fun.
After high school, he went to college with the intention of becoming an architect, but after a year he left school to start working instead.
He has worked a variety of jobs including bartending, construction, hydroponic gardening, bagging groceries, and delivering newspapers.
Says these experiences have all given him skills that he still utilizes in his career today and that practical experience has been a valuable education.
Managed a restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles called uWink, where you can order and customize anything off of a touch screen—admits this idea was ahead of its time and it eventually closed.
Got the opportunity to join his brother, Brent Bushnell, at his company Two Bit Circus—there he is affectionately referred to as “King Carny” and in charge of all event and game production.
Says that finishing college is still on his “bucket list”.
