Boy Genius behind Halo

The Kiwi boy genius behind Halo

“Chris Butcher started taking high school math and science classes when he was just eight-years-old, began his first degree in math and computer science when he was 10, and completed it when he was 15.

Now aged 29, Mr Butcher has reached the pinnacle in the video gaming world after being hired as a lead engineer on one of the most popular video games of all time – Halo 3, the last in the Halo series.”





Newcomb’s Commentary: Let’s see … at 10, I was setting up a neighborhood “zoo” in western Nebraska — 5 cents to look and 10 cents to pet the rattlesnakes — and then putting them in the deep freeze for a bit to slow their strike speeds. People like Mr. Butcher are wonders to behold and breathe hope into humanity’s future.
