My first RPG was Secret of Mana in 1993. I played with my two cousins using an SNES multitap. In college I organized community tournaments for Super Smash Brothers Melee. Whether I'm playing with friends in the room, connecting through the internet, or playing by myself and comparing experiences later on, gaming has always been a decidedly social experience for me. That is why I am so excited to contribute to the mission and community here at RPGFan.

My favorite games are the really immersive ones, the ones that draw you in to the story and keep you playing well past the point of rational time investment. I love exploring a well-constructed world, getting to know its characters, and seeing it come to life. It is my lifelong dream to create and publish a game with my best friend, but first I have to learn how to program and use a game development platform. To this end, I am absolutely thrilled by the explosion of indie games we are currently experiencing. Not only is the industry churning out the types of games I love, but they're doing it with small teams and limited funds.

In my real life I'm a solo lawyer in California. I'm most interested in tech, privacy, and entertainment law with a little bit of criminal defense thrown in to keep things interesting/crazy. I love to travel, and I speak functional Japanese and Chinese, with a smattering of Spanish for good measure. My favorite thing to do abroad is to visit the local grocery store. It is a very candid window into the life of the average local.

In summary, love gaming, love people, love new and interesting things, and now love RPGFan.
