Gary Rosenzweig started programming in the early '80s on TRS-80 and Apple computers. After getting a degree in computer science from Drexel University, he started using the Flash-like tools Hypercard and Macromedia Director to create multimedia applications.
After getting a degree in journalism and mass communication from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Rosenzweig began to work with Macromedia Director professionally and eventually wrote six books about Director. His most recent is Special Edition Using Director 8.5 from Que publishing.
In 1995, Rosenzweig started CleverMedia, a game development company that specializes in Shockwave games. CleverMedia now has four game sites, including http://clevermedia.com/ and http://flasharcade.com/. The latter is a site composed completely of Flash games, some dating back to Flash 2.
Rosenzweig also speaks at Macromedia User Conferences, the Game Developers Conference, and other events. In his spare time, he reads a lot of classic science fiction, watches independent films, and listens to alternative rock music. He lives in Denver, Colorado, with his wife, Debby; dog, Natasha; and daughter, Lucy. You can find out more and contact him through his Web site http://www.garyrosenzweig.com/.
