Steve Meister, aka MrSmileyFaceDude, is one of the programmers at Bethesda Softworks. He first joined Bethesda in the spring of 2001 as a programmer for Morrowind (before that he had been working at ZeniMax Media). Since then, he has worked on both Morrowind and Oblivion, and is partly responsible for the Scourge easter egg in Morrowind. Meister was the Lead Programmer for Fallout 3, but his current position is unknown. He still occasionally visits the IRC channel, #elderscrolls on Chatspike.
