About Justin Villasenorone of us since 10:40 PM on 01.17.2007



Hey all, the name's Justin and I've been hanging around Destructoid since late 2006. I joined the staff in 2007 as a News Contributor after flooding the tip line on a daily basis, and then I got to write stuff on the front page. Now I mostly just bum around while doing grad school stuff.
