About
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.

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.
