Ed Fries, Director
Ed Fries got his start in the 1980s, developing video games for the Atari 800. In 1986, after a short detour for a BS in Computer Science, he joined Microsoft and spent the next ten years as one of the founding developers of Excel and Word, and then later as the creator of Microsoft Game Studios. Over the next eight years, he grew his team from fifty to over twelve-hundred people, published more than 100 games (including more than a dozen million-plus sellers), co-founded the Xbox project, and made Microsoft one of the leaders in the interactive entertainment business.
In 2004, Ed left Microsoft, and now he enjoys spending time with his wife and young sons, as well as consulting with a broad range of publishers and game developers from all over the world.
