When computers were first coming out, my mother decided that she wasn't going to get left behind, and started learning and eventually building her own. As a result, I've had access to a computer for almost as long as I can remember. We only had one computer at first, and we'd all gather around the most powerful one as one of us (usually my mother, especially for horror games) played the latest game. My sister and I were the peanut gallery, offering advice, criticism, and (occassionally) screaming (Phantasmagoria anyone?)

We eventually gained our own systems, and I have been a complete nerd since then. I started with text adventures and went on from there, seeking out truly great stories to immerse myself in. Sierra and Lucas Arts in their heyday provided me with countless hours of entertainment, eventually developing into a love for computers and everything to do with them.

I branched into graphic editing and webpage design when I got into text-roleplaying, to illustrate and describe my character, and those skills I gained enable me to eventually gain a position here at RPGFan.
