After Fallout, he stayed at Interplay for a while, serving as producer on Fallout Tactics as well as designer of Star Trek; Starfleet Command, until he left to join Vivendi Universal Games, where he worked as a producer of Lord of the Rings Online. In 2008, he rejoined Interplay to work with Jason Anderson on Project V13, as the Lead Systems Designer. Together with Scott Everts and Tom Decker, he also founded Zero Radius Games, a board game company. In 2012, he appeared in the Mayan Apocolypse fundraiser video for the second Project V13.
