During the days that Suarez used to serve as an IT consultant, he used to work for Fortune 1000 companies where he not only designed but also developed innovative technologies for finance, entertainment and defense industries as well. Due to the author’s long-held interest in the field of creative writing and Information and Technologies systems, a majority of his high-tech and sci-fi books are about technology-driven change. Furthermore, apart from working as a consultant for a wide range of companies, Daniel Suarez has also talked about technology at the MIT Media Lab, Long Now Foundation TED Global and several other platforms.
What makes Daniel Suarez exceedingly unique is that everything that he knows and understands in the field of technology and software development is all self-taught, considering that fact that he did not study scientific subjects while in college. Furthermore, Daniel Suarez is also an avid PC and console game, which may explain the skills that he possess in world building. Ever since he was young, writing has always been something that Suarez has always wanted to do. When he was still a child, Suarez saw himself as America’s next big thing in the literacy world, which is one of the main reasons that pushed him to take a degree in the English language.
After reading the novel, Piano Player, Daniel Suarez developed an interest in the field of technology, while he was still attending grammar school. The novel was exceedingly compelling such that David Suarez would reread the novel several times when attending both high school and college as well.
Struck by the cord of a budding writer and believing that the world was going to a place where people would no longer need to work, Suarez believed that such a development was going to rob life its meaning. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature, David Suarez served as a pen and paper game moderator before he began doing other things apart from writing.
