I grew up deprived of videogames, all I ever wanted was an NES and my parents said no way. So as soon as I moved out I bought a Nintendo 64 and haven't looked back since. I love most types of games, mainly shooters, action and Nintendo first party stuff. The only genre I don't dig is JRPG's, I can't get into turn-based action. I don't game as much as I used to, now that I've got a time-consuming job and live with my girlfriend and dog. But I still manage to play a bit, usually sitting on the couch next to my special lady friend as she plays "Sally's Salon" and that type of stuff on her iPhone. Talk shit about casual iPhone games all you want but my girl was not a gamer at all when I met her and through the iPhone she has become more hardcore than me! I have felt her wrath if I interrupt her as she's trying to beat a tough level of "Diner Dash." Now we happily game together (Rock Band) and seperately while still hanging out.

Other than gaming, I work as a television news photographer in Seattle and try to make music videos in my spare time. This is a link to one I'm especially proud of, if you're interesed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MngWu3Pyk78

I'm always looking for more online friends, I'm not super hardcore but I don't completely suck. The only game I will destroy you in is Mario Kart Wii battle mode. Go ahead and challenge me if you don't believe me.

Recently a University of Washington electrical engineering student hacked the Kinect to enable it to work with robotic surgery. It's pretty cool stuff. For my day job I work as a photojournalist in Seattle and I shot and edited this story. I usually don't post stuff on this blog relating to my television work but I thought this story was appropriate. If you want to see video of it in action, click the link.
