Developer Biography

Jacob Solomon graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor's of Science in Computer Science in 2000, and is currently (2002) studying for his Masters from the Johns Hopkins University. Since receiving his bachelor's, he has worked as a programmer (Tools Manager) at Firaxis on both Civilization III and SimGolf.

An avid gamer since the earliest days of PC gaming, Jacob is flooded with horror when he realizes that he was actually leaning towards corporate consulting as a possible career path before his extremely fortunate, extremely fortuitous discovery of his current position at Firaxis.
