Early on, Howard’s fascination with computers, particularly video games, took root, inspired by classics like Wizardry and Ultima III: Exodus. Raised in Lower Macungie Township, Pennsylvania, he pursued his education at Emmaus High School, graduating in 1989. His journey continued at the College of William & Mary, where he majored in business while nurturing his passion for computer science. Despite initially viewing business as the simplest collegiate path, Howard’s affinity for game development persisted.

The pivotal moment in Howard’s career trajectory came during a holiday break in his senior year at college. Discovering Bethesda Softworks’ game Wayne Gretzky Hockey, he felt compelled to seek opportunities at the company’s offices in Rockville, Maryland. Despite initial rejections, his persistence paid off when Bethesda eventually recruited him as a producer in 1994.
