Charles Orenthal James Patterson was born on August 13, 1988 in the East Bay of Northern California. Raised primarily in Pittsburg, CA, he spent his adolescence writing stories and video game ideas. Every blue-lined paper was impressed with passion. This desire transfered to high school and later college where every step taken was towards involvement in video game design. Charles recently graduated from the University of Advancing Technology with a Bachelors in Multimedia and Game Design. He hopes to find employment at a game development studio in the near future at any available capacity.
