Hello there! I'm Jed. I've been "in the gaming journalism industry" sort of, kind of, for some time. Be it here in the cblogs, Tomodom (a site I made for underrepresented voices in games journalism), Girls Entertainment Network, and on the YouTubes and Twitches.

I recently got a new, awesome job where I'm on the computer nearly all day and have lots of downtime, so expect more and more activity from me in the following weeks. I hope you find this enjoyable and informitive. Feel free to leave some feedback :)
