Mark Voorsanger, Founder, a.k.a. ToeJam
Mark Voorsanger has managed and directed the development of CD-ROM
titles, cartridge-based video games, standard PC titles, full-motion video-based
products, and other cutting-edge systems.
Before founding ToeJam & Earl Productions with Greg Johnson, Mark
was a lead programmer for Hasbro's project NEMO, where he helped to develop
the first full-motion interactive games for in-home use. That work was eventually
to become Night Trap , for the Sega CD. Still earlier in his career, he programmed
two games for Imagic: Fathom for the ColecoVision, and Demon Attack for the
Tandy Color Computer.
Throughout 1999, Mark served as Project Lead for ePlanet, Inc. , where he led
the team to create Freeblenux, the world's first virtual alien with the gift with
sight. This ground-breaking product, built for personal computers with a digital
video camera attached, attracted the interest and financial backing of such
prestigious partners as Intel, Mattel, Logitech, Hasbro, Nickelodeon, and Lego.
Mark has consulted in the design and development of games with companies such
as LucasArts Entertainment, Activision, and Accolade.
Mark received his Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer
Science from the University of California at Berkeley.
