It’s those dastardly Kyzivat brothers, as George Gomez has dubbed us. Well, one half of the dastardly duo anyway. Hi, this is Mike Kyzivat. I am a programmer here at Stern pinball and I’ve been with the company for a little over 10 years. I was originally hired in 2007 and have worked as a support programmer, designer, and even voice actor on many games. Some highlights include Shrek, Spider-Man Vault Edition, Elvira House of Horrors, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Deadpool, Godzilla, and Ghostbusters. I am also a massive fan of pop culture, which lends itself well to my line of work, especially in theme integration and writing dialogue.
