Developer Biography

Julian Lefay was born in Denmark Oct. 30, 1965. He began programming in Europe in the early 1980's and became known as one of the best Amstrad and Amiga programmers during Commodore's heyday. His programs have won numerous industry awards in every category.

While best known for games programming starting at an early age in Denmark, he was widely recognized as one of Europe’s best Amstrad and Amiga programmers. His reputation and expertise eventually lead to being courted by American games companies and his emigration to the United States. Julian initially worked for a small games company in Annapolis Maryland and then joined Bethesda in 1988 as a Programmer, eventually becoming Bethesda’s Chief Engineer in charge of all software development. During this time, he created a large number of computer games, most notably the internationally acclaimed Elder Scrolls role-playing series. He is often referred to as the "Father of the Elder Scrolls".

Lefay’s expertise spans a wide range of areas from applied statistics; natural language processing; digital signal processing and database management. He is a certified project manager (PMP) and most recently was a programmer and statistician at the United States Patent and Trademark Office, where he helped oversee their database programming.

For relaxation, Julian has been coding the first deep syntax Greek parser.
