||Edward Isenberg got his BS in computer graphics from Marycrest College
in Iowa. While earning his Masters, Ed taught a class in BASIC. At that
time Ezra Sidran, one of Ed's students, was
developing a war game called the Universal Military Simulator (UMS) for
the Atari. Ezra hired Ed to write the IBM and Amiga versions of UMS on
which he worked both as a developer and artist. Fellow students
Andy Kanakares and Mike Pash
were also hired and for over a decade they wrote and played computer games
together. Music was created by keyboardist David Craft.
The team won 3 awards, including Strategy Plus magazine's Readers'
Choice Award, for Best Strategic Simulation of the Year 1991, for UMS2.
Ed now works as a freelance computer artist and animator.
