I'm here for practice, exposure and teamwork! Yeah! Patrick "Ramza" Gann recruited me to help out at RPGFan, and I'm just doing my part.

I've been playing games of every genre since I moved to the United States, when my stepbrother got me hooked on Duck Hunt. I currently enjoy way too much disposable income, which helps me enjoy things like movies (Miike, Mann, Scorsese, Spielberg), magazines (The New Yorker, The Economist, The New Republic), newspapers (The New York Times, The Washington Post, The York Dispatch!), music (Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, The Decemberists, DragonForce) and boxed seasons of television (Veronica Mars, Boston Legal, Battlestar Galactica, The West Wing).

I visit salon.com almost hourly, and I hold up Gamespot, Kotaku and thedigitalbits as the best sites on the Internet.
