About

I'm the Community Playdate Manager for Destructoid. Looking to play some games with other Dtoiders? Check out the forums and watch the blogs and front page for all of the fun!

I guess I'm more "collector" than gamer these days. Sure I still play my 360/Wii/DS/3DS and so on, and I love them all, but I just don't have the free time to play them like I used to.

I started my gaming life on an old Atari 2600 that my dad bought us for Christmas. I used to frequent the local arcade (early 80's) and I have a passion for anything pinball.

You may not know this but I also help run the Xbox 360 FNF side of business on Dtoid. You can always host or find games to play here: Friday Night Fights Forum Thread

As of this update (1.09.2012) I currently have:

33 Consoles
47 Handhelds
1562 physical copies of various games
155 digital copies of games
Tons of other video game related items

I'm also a huge comic book nerd, here are some of my all-time favorites, in no particular order:


Cerberus the Aardvark


Groo the Wanderer


Howard the Duck


Usagi Yojimbo


BatMan

I also love music, all types really. If I had to pick a favorite album of all time I would have to go with:


The Cure: Disintegration. This album is perfect, from beginning to end.

My daughter is also a gamer of sorts, here she is lavishing in all of her Nintendo plushies:


Oh yea, did I mention that I love Pinball more than any other game ever? Because I totally do.


I also like to doodle when I'm bored, as seen below

I drew that when I was bored.

Sometimes, when I'm not gaming or collecting I'll post blogs, here are a couple recent ones:

ChillyBilly's Hidden Gems - Nano Assault

Tales from the Battlefield - Operation Rolling Hell

My Time so far with Battlefield 3

Friday Night Fights: Everybody have fun tonight

Happy Friday! Boy, it sure has been a week, huh? I think it's time to take a step back, relax a little bit, and just have some fun. You know what, that's what I'm going to do right now. Hopefully the video above will help everyone get in a better mood.

Team Fortress 2sdays: But for the Heavy, it was Tuesday

Happy Tuesday! Not much going on this week. So, who's excited for (insert game here)? That's pretty much all I got. Oh, if you're bored, you can go and adopt my avatar for PAX this year, or you can write your own blog and have someone take your avatar to PAX with them. Neat, huh?

Team Fortress 2sdays: I am Groot

Happy Tuesday! I have a confession to make. I have yet to see Guardians of the Galaxy. I know, I know, "where the hell are your priorities?", look, I've been busy moving and stuff.... Luckily, Shadow has had a chance to watch, what I understand may be Marvel's best movie yet, take it away Shadow.

Team Fortress 2sdays: Between 2fort with UEAK Crash

Happy Tuesday! I absolutely love this "Between 2Fort" interview series. I've watched each one so far and have had a phenomenal time with each and every one. This is saying a lot, since I can hardly bring myself to listen to any podcast. Something about watching people have to answer questions while trying to not get shot, just rubs me all the right ways.

Team Fortress 2sdays: Post summer sale sadness

Happy Tuesday! It's over. The Steam summer sale has finally ended. Personally, I'm glad it's over. I spent way more than I said I would, and I have a feeling I would have kept going. 19 games. That was my haul this year, nineteen friggin games. Out of those nineteen games, how many have I played? Four. I'll eventually get around to playing the other fifteen games. One day.

Friday Night Fights: I hate the summer

Happy Friday! Welcome to Destructoid's Friday Night Fights! Now that we're officially in to the summer season, I thought I would just get something out there. It's hot. It's uncomfortably, sticky, muggy, hot. Being in Florida in the summer is probably the equivalent of being on the sun at any given time. It's awful, it's bright oh and did I mention, it's hot? Because it's totally hot.
