Doug Peterson


Doug grew up in Montana. "My father and grandmother were both big crossword solvers," he says, "so I started diving into grids at an early age." He began constructing in 2003, and he likes making many kinds of puzzles, "from Monday-level puzzles with easy themes to gnarly, tear-your-hair-out themeless puzzles." He deliberately tries to include in his puzzles at least one entry that's never been used before. Doug is a bachelor living in Southern California. He works at a small accounting firm and tutors high school students. He says his interests are pretty standard: reading, baseball, Batman, and listening to European heavy metal bands.
