My first exposure to RPGs was a dusty cartridge shoved into the back of a Chrome Game Boy, power button flicked up, the soft ding of the logo splayed across a black and white screen. In a non-stop marathon of a day and a half, meals and breaks notwithstanding, my nine year old self worked his way through The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.

Nothing that I had done as a child, in the realm of books and television, had come close to the rush I had felt by outsmarting bosses, exploring ruins, and helping Link fulfill his quest. It set my imagination ablaze, and I sought more. Pokémon Yellow, Final Fantasy Adventure, and as I found new consoles and handhelds, more RPGs found their way to me, as well as a host of games in other genres. Each taught me rules, systems, and told stories that were worth paying all of my attention. Link gave me my love of video games, my love for great stories, and a desire to share that love with others.

It was this love that led me to a bunch of university education, ranging from journalism, linguistics, cooking, and translation, wherein at the end of it all, I came out with a BA in Creative Communications (Writing and Linguistics) and a minor in Japanese studies. I reside in Adelaide, a quaint coastal city in South Australia. I'm a published author, love marathon running, cooking for just about anyone, reading a ridiculously huge backlog of books, and writing short stories about small wizards and robot composers.

I don't know what I want to do, regarding big career aspirations, but as long as RPGs continue to exist, and we have ways to talk, discuss and fan out over them, I'll do my best to share that love of the genre with those around me.
