I got interested in conlanging a while back, for reasons that are beyond me, and since have done it on a very on-and-off basis. Most of my personal interest, though, has otherwise been in computer programming, as has been a good amount of my reading.

"What got you interested in world design?"
My big pet project, which I've been working on for upwards of eight years now. In the latter half of those eight years, designing Rahturi became a distinct priority (before then, it was just a "different world" with premodern technology and such).
"What kind of books do you read?"
I don't really read books. I watch movies and TV, and play video games. Most of the books I do read (which aren't very many) are educational.
"What did you study in school?"
I'm studying game development. Recently though I've been thinking it over, as I'm not a fan of the heavy business aspects of the video game industry, and I don't think I'd mentally survive in that world. So I'm probably going to go for linguistics instead because language has always been easy for me; I might also go for a history major.
I’ve been designing worlds for as long as I can remember; most of my earliest memories revolve around them... but time and reality have unfortunately had a tendency to force the ordinary over the imaginative, so I’ve fallen into and out of worldbuilding at times. Currently studying mathematics with computer science (MIT course 6C), formerly physics. My literary tastes tend toward the modernists (Woolf, Joyce, Hesse, Kafka, etc.) along with more fantastic/science-fictional works (Stapledon, Dunsany, Asimov, Lovecraft, etc.).
