Developer Biography

Patrick Dawson is a 2001 graduate of the University of Maryland with a B.S. degree in Computer Science. During his time at Maryland, Patrick learned that playing with others is more fun than playing with yourself, and dedicated his studies to multiplayer programming. He currently is a Programmer with FIRAXIS.

He loves the BareNaked Ladies (no, the musical group), and can be found listening to them all day while he works on Civilization III.
