About
I am also a contributer on Damnlag dot com. You can read my column, Broken Pixels and check out all the other great stuff we've got going on there. Just remember to wear pants.

Anyway, about me...

My name is Jack Ninivaggi AKA Wandering Pixel, and I'm here to rock your world! Or at least cause some sort of tremor.

I live over on the east coast in New Jersey. My favorite types of games are those that have great writing. I'm going to college right now and plan on majoring in either communications or literature. When I'm not playing games I'm either reading a book or comic, watching a movie or sleeping. I'm a huge fan of animation and my favorite thing to do is watch old animated films, I'm also a theater geek, and frequently make trips to New York to watch the latest musicals and plays on Broadway. one day I plan on making a living by writing, though I haven't yet decided what kind of writing I want to do. Anyway, this is my blog. Enjoy!

A while back, Chad Concelmo wrote an article about what videogame characters the Dtoid crew looked like. At the time I was trying to figure out a way in which to express my love, and admiration of the fine editors of this site, and when I saw Chad's article, it hit me: Motivational posters.

So for the past few weeks I have slowly been working on this little project. I couldn't afford Photoshop, so I made these using powerpoint, paint, and word. Personally, I think they turned out pretty good, but I suppose that is for you, as well as the Dtoid crew, to decide.

I dedicate this to the men and women of Dtoid, who's humor, kindness, and love of videogames helped me get through a very difficult time in my life. It was very personal, so I'm going to keep the details to myself. Let's just say that if it were not for this community, I would not have the courage to look towards tommorrow.
