I’m a late-blooming gamer from Southern California. As a child, I was always drawn toward video games, and I grew up on a steady diet of Asian PC strategy games, supplemented by an SNES. These later gave way to a PSone and PlayStation 2, but I never really had an opportunity to unleash that inner-nerd until college, when I finally found myself surrounded by more experienced gamers and purchased an Xbox 360. During my fourth and final year as an undergrad, I was recruited to work for Neoseeker by Gabe.
I describe myself as a gamer first and feminist second – though the two occasionally clash. As for video games, I love too many to actually name, but favorite series of mine include Halo, Mass Effect, Elder Scrolls, Gears of War, and Assassin's Creed. I also harbor a deep affection for Mandalorians and Green Lanterns.

Video games. I've played video games for as long as I can remember and odds are I'll be playing video games until the day I die. Perhaps it was my first game, Leisure Suit Larry, which I recall watching my mother play on a groaning, barely competent pile we called a PC, that gave me my sardonic sense of humor. I like to think that each game I've played over the years, and I've played many, have each done their part to make me the man I am today. I like to think that one day I'll be able to return that favor and leave my mark on gaming.
Born and raised in rural Oregon, gaming was perhaps the most obvious of diversions to the near endless rain and what felt like marathon distances to friends' houses. It didn't help that those friends were also habitual gamers. Oddly enough it never clicked in my head to pursue a career in gaming until much later. Along the way I picked up my Bachelor's of Science in Computer Science at Oregon State University. It wasn't until post graduation that I found my niche in gaming journalism and critical review. Needless to say, I've been here since. From 2010 to until whenever you're currently reading this -- video games.

I first lost my soul to gaming when I borrowed my brother's Game Boy for what should have been some quick rounds of Super Mario Land 2: The Six Golden Coins. Gaming on the go stuck ever since, so handhelds have always had a certain charm for ol' me despite my interest in many other gaming platforms nowadays. That eventually led me to becoming part of Team Neo along with site administrator Howard and fellow Neoseeker Gabe when the site was still in its infancy, which at this point was quite some time ago!
I am proud to have witnessed Neoseeker grow both as a site covering games and computer hardware, and as a community for gamers who want to share their interests. Naturally, I am is keen to see Neoseeker reach even greater heights with the support of that very community!
