I'm a hipster twentysomething gamer who, despite finance and circumstance, has managed to keep fairly up-to-date on the gaming industry most of my life.

I've got a degree in graphic design and film; minor in art. I use these to sound like an asshole who knows more than you about aesthetic and movies. Call me out on it. Nobody wants to be that guy, guys. Shrug!
See you around.
