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.

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!

I started gaming with the NES in 1987. From there it was a love affair with each generation to present day, watching everything evolve on both sides -- the PC with games like Syndicate and Rise of the Triad and the console wars between SEGA and Nintendo. I am also a hardware addict, always tweaking and troubleshooting audio, video and PCs until I'm satisfied with them. When I can break away from work I tend to hide in the latest FPS, action-adventure and racing games out on the market, either on the 360 or my PC.
My editorial past is a stroke of luck. In 2002 I joined Neoseeker as a temp for E3 while in college; after that I did my best to continue contributing news and features until I found myself a permanent member of the team. Today I focus on bringing events, reviews, previews, and exclusive features to the site for everyone to enjoy year-round.
