Sean Hopkins graduated in December 2015 as an English major. He grew up in Sindian in Senegal, West Africa, where his parents were translators. He enjoys rock climbing and multiplayer online fantasy and science fiction computer games. His first computer game ever was “Commander Keen,” which he played on a laptop powered by a solar panel on the roof of a mud brick home. He kept his feet up off the cement floor (to avoid scorpions) and his chin resting on his knees (a gaming and schoolwork typing position which he adopts to this day), while he guided Keen through his virtual world of shooting slugs and bouncing on pogo sticks.
