My shrine to the gods of gaming.

As far back as I can remember, I've always been a gamer. I'm serious about that cliche. My first memory really is playing Super Mario Bros. on a dilapidated Nintendo Entertainment System. Ever since I've been obsessed with video games. Being an adult who knows where his priorities lie, I've since upgraded from a then-outdated NES to every current generation system and an obscenely large flat-screen television.

Someday, I hope to combine my two loves of writing and video games into a career in games journalism.

My bookshelf

When I'm not writing or gaming or watching a movie, I'm likely engrossed in a book. Science Fiction and Fantasy are my crack-cocaine, with comic books and graphic novels being my heroin. I also have the really expensive habit of buying a ton of books with no place to put them. The adjacent picture contains only a fraction of my full collection. When I'm a rich and famous video game journalist/movie critic/superhero/astronaut, I will have one of those old Victorian libraries with shelves full to the ceilings.

If I don't make it as a games journalist, I'd be more than happy to be the next Roger Ebert. If any newspapers or websites are interested in a young and hip movie critic, I direct your attention to the link at the bottom of the page that says "email me." Please?
