adams.jpg William Adams grew up in Korea, Japan and various parts of the U.S. as a military brat. Enlisted in the Air Force after high school in rural Virginia.

After college worked in the packaging industry as a graphic artist for the obligatory ``entry-level job''.

Returned to the love of letters and books evoked by reading Oscar Ogg's The 26 Letters as a youth and got a BFA in graphic design. Studied typography and font design, thus learning TeX and METAFONT. Began using TeX after acquiring a NeXT Cube in 1995.

Currently working as a publishing specialist using TeX to typeset math and science books and the odd database.
