A former child prodigy, Elyot obtained top national honors in mathematics, yet refused to enjoy anything except video games. Elyot took more pride in winning the Reddit Starcraft Tournament than he did in earning the Computing Research Association's most prestigious research award in North America. Decried for wasting his talents, Elyot founded Lunarch Studios to pursue his true passion. Elyot's hobbies include earning degrees in mathematics (3 of them, one from MIT), video game speedrunning (world records in 3 games), theoretical computer science, math olympiads, and puzzle championships. He is the co-creator of Prismata, a game with over 900,000 owners on Steam.
