I was raised in southwestern PA, in a little town called Canonsburg. It's about 20 miles south of Pittsburgh, and is smalltown USA/semi-rural -- can't really be counted as a suburb of da Burgh.
The best word I can use to describe the area is "provincial."
Went to Penn State, University Park, for college. Moved back home for a year after college (dear lord). Fled to DC when opportunity presented itself. Have lived in the Washington Metro area since. Got my graduate degree from Johns Hopkins.
I'm a telecommunications standards editor by day, and a freelance writer by night. You can check out my Publications from one of the geocities pages noted above and my company website. I have no doubt that my experience growing up in a small town had a tremendous impact on my game Dead Inside.
