John C. Worsley
John is our resident renaissance man, wearing up to twelve
different hats on any given day. In addition to being a server
engineer, tools developer, and game designer, he's also our resident artist and musician.
Before ClutchPlay, he was the dedicated server-engineer for the
"Touch Pets" series published by ngmoco:) as well as Quests and
Sorcery: Skyfall. Before ngmoco:), John co-founded and drove Command Prompt,
Inc for over three years, a successful Linux and PostgreSQL-focused
consultancy, during which time he wrote the book "Practical
PostgreSQL," published in 2001 by O'Reilly and Associates, and co-developed the video
game featured in Gus Van Sant's "Elephant."
When not developing games, John can be found illustrating graphic novels,
composing and performing electronic music, volunteering for the Stumptown Comics Fest,
and generally endeavoring to produce as much
creative output as he can before shuffling off this mortal coil. John has been known
to literally recoil from an unexpected shaft of sunlight and, to date, none of us have
independently confirmed the existence of his reflection in a mirror.
