Jerek (Jerek) Dain <Designer / Developer>
Jerek has been doing design and tool development across ZAM sites since 2007, such as on Rifthead, and designing the charts, tooltips, and filters on LolKing. After a number of small contributions working with Skosiris early on he's transitioned to doing a lot on Wowhead, notably rushing to get the MoP talent calculator live before BlizzCon 2011 ended, and going on to the battle pet area and pages revamp, the new profiler, and Hearthhead tools. He loves learning new programming languages and tools, and making things "pixel perfect".
Jerek has been playing World of Warcraft since the original beta in 2004 and has every collector's edition. He loves to keep switching his main character to top DPS charts, tank, and heal on multiple classes, and leveling multiple warriors (3 different ones to cap!). He's also a big fan of puzzle games, Diablo 2, Alpha Centauri, Metroid, the Legend of Zelda, and Minecraft. In his spare time he customizes everything, starts more projects than he can complete, and listens to tons of audiobooks and podcasts while gaming. He's currently raiding with Edamame Enterprise in Convert to Raid.
