Brain has been interested in computers since he was a kid. He started programming on the old Vic 20 at home as a hobby, then he graduated to the Commodore 64, and later to the Amiga. He finally started getting paid for his work when he got hired at Distinctive Software, Inc. in Burnaby, British Columbia. Working at DSI, Brain became the living, beating proof that you don't have to hate going to work. DSI later became Electronic Arts Canada, and the rest is history.
