Jamie Faye Fenton (born Jay Fenton) is a game programmer best known for the 1981 hit arcade game Gorf.[1][2] She has been active in the transgender community and transitioned from male to female around 1998.[1] Fenton was drawn to computer technology while in school because its highly predictable nature appealed to her and it provided a safe haven from being picked on by other students.[1]

She is also one of the creators of MacroMind's VideoWorks software (since renamed Macromedia Director).
