Dr Petter, aka Tomas Pettersson, is a computer programmer, game developer, and prolific creator of tools for game developers: sound FX and music generators,  3D sculpting and more.

Let's see... I've quit school, got a job at Pixologic, moved out of my apartment. Also gone all kinds of places in Europe on the back of a motorbike with my father. Italy and Croatia were particularly nice.
