Fletcher has 16 years of professional game programming experience, with around a dozen titles under his belt on a variety of gaming platforms. He worked at Terminal Reality in Dallas, where as principal programmer he was one of the architects of the Infernal Engine and lead programmer on BloodRayne. He was a technical director for The Walt Disney Company at Wideload Games in Chicago and the lead programmer for Disney Guilty Party, IGN’s E3 2010 Family Game of the Year.

Oh, but his biggest claim to fame by far is as the namesake of Corporal Dunn from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
