My life and experience with video games began with the receipt of a Sony Playstation in the first grade. I was a latchkey kid and I am an only child, the rest is history. I hail from the corn-saturated landmass known to many as Iowa. I personally do not grow corn but I eat it, and it is tasty. Rather than farming or owning livestock my interests lay more in the fields of video games, music, and media. I aspire to write about such topics, and I attend the University in Iowa in order to have a greater opportunity in the endeavor of achieving a career in these industries. In my attendance I hope to successfully obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies, as well as a Performing Arts Entrepreneurship Certificate. Outside of spending my time and money trying to earn pieces of paper, I enjoy playing video games: retro video game collecting, video game history, Pokemon, creating music, listening to music, Mexican cuisine, constantly turning the volume knob up and down on my car's head unit, meeting people, writing, and debating. I am currently attempting to become a dedicated Tweeter and successfully start and maintain a blog. Please feel free to comment or contact me, I look forward to it.
