From the artist's website:
I grew up in Raleigh, NC, and currently live in Pittsburgh, PA, where I graduated from Carnegie Mellon in 1999 with a BS in Computer Science and a minor in Philosophy. After graduating, I worked for CMU for another five years as a research programmer in the Stage3 Research Group. My research interests included 3D Graphics, Virtual Reality, and user interface design. I've since moved on to become a full-time game developer. I'm INTP, if you're into that sort of thing.
