I entered the gaming scene at the tender age of nine, with Super Mario Land on the original Game Boy. Much to my parents' chagrin, I've been hooked ever since, owning and loving a variety of consoles and handhelds. My very first RPG was the classic SNES gem Super Mario RPG, but it wasn't until I played Final Fantasy VII and Xenogears that I knew I was hooked.

Putting aside origin stories, there's just something special and — if I may be a bit cliché — magical about RPGs. Maybe it's the colorful casts of characters, the addictive battle systems, or the detailed stories that drew me in. It could also be the awesome music, which I've spent countless hours listening to both in and outside of the games I play. Which perhaps makes it quite fitting that I join the RPGFan community by geeking out on Rhythm Encounter, our music podcast.

Outside of RPGs, I also play action/adventure games and the occasional FPS. I'm a huge fan of the Metal Gear Solid and Sly Cooper series, and I've also enjoyed stand alone titles such as Okami and The Last of Us. There are certain genres I steer clear of, but I also branch out and try new things if they look good.

When I'm not playing games, I'm reading books, watching movies, hanging out with friends, and — if I absolutely have to — going to work. I'm afraid my professional life is rather dull, unless you've got a thing for law libraries, but I was very much into music and theater in high school and I studied Japanese in college, which hopefully makes me a little more interesting. I am a cat person, I have a serious, don't-mock-me love of plushies, and I think that sleeping in until noon isn't unusual at all. And now, having run out of things to say, I should go.
