About


Hey all, the nameís Justin and Iíve been hanging around Destructoid since late 2006. Itís okay if you donít recognize me from way back when, as I was originally known as TheGoldenDonut (and still am in the forums). I joined the staff in 2007 as a News Contributor after flooding the tip line on a daily basis, and then I got to write stuff on the front page. Now I mostly just bum around while doing grad school stuff. I'm also learning to code a bit.


That hip, guitar-playing bear is from Kokoro Scan.
