Hello, I'm Rufus Scott

I'm a long-term gamer and a full-time teacher. If I'm not writing about my experiences as a gamer-teacher, I'm over-thinking games because I can, or rambling about life as a "grown-up" gamer.

You can find me writing in the Community area here, or at my own site - GamerPeak.com.
