"As hard as it gets, it's still the best fucking job in the world" Pete Parsons, on working at Bungie during the production of Halo 2
Pete "Mango" Parsons was the studio manager of Bungie from 2002 - 2006, as well as the executive producer of Halo 2. Essentially, his job is to supervise the team and making sure that their job is smooth and nothing will happen to hinder them in the production of the Halo game.
Parsons, 38, left a senior marketing job at Microsoft to join the Halo crew as studio manager. He once said "I'd been a Bungie fan for a long time. They're an incredibly talented group of people who don't accept second best. I like the bar being set so high that falling off would kill you."
He is currently working on a non-Halo project within Microsoft alongside Jeremiah, a.k.a Ninja on Fire.
