Scott Adams holds a BA in economics from Hartwick College, in Oneonta, New York, and an MBA from the University of California at Berkeley. Adams held a variety of-in his words-"humiliating and low-paying jobs." He's been a bank teller (he was robbed twice at gunpoint), computer programmer, financial analyst, product manager, commercial lender, budget manager, strategist, project manager, and pseudo-engineer.

During this time Adams entertained himself during boring meetings by drawing insulting cartoons of his co-workers and bosses. Eventually a bespectacled character named Dilbert emerged from the doodles. Now Adams devotes his entire day (and much of the evening) to Dilbert, including speaking, writing, doing interviews, designing artwork for licensed products and answering hundreds of e-mail messages per day. Dilbert is published in over 1,200 newspapers worldwide, on its own Web site and in more than a million books.
