A Brief Bio for Eddie Zelhofer (EZ or The EZ1)

I grew up in Arizona and decided to come back to my birthplace in Oshkosh, Wisconsin to go to college. While attending the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh I studied business, played volleyball, volunteered for the campus cinema and worked at a Blockbuster Video.

My first "real" job was for a marketing agency as a web developer, something I didn't go to school for but dabbled with on the side. It was at this job that I developed the programming and design skills I use now. I currently own a web development company called Thinksite.

In the late 90's I stumbled upon a game called Mr. Showbiz's Summer Box Office Challenge, a game of fictitious movie studios. I was addicted to the game up until the day it was shut down in 2001. Things lay dormant for a year or so until I found a small group of people trying to keep the game going through a message board. With that group's help I was able to create a new game and the rest is history.
