I'm an incredibly passionate gamer who enjoys just about everything involved in gaming. I love to write and love to write about video games, which led me to major in Journalism in college. Most of my free time is spent playing video games or talking about them with my friends. I created my blog on WordPress so I could get my opinion out there and attempt to find my voice as a writer when it comes to my favorite thing.

I was taken on by as a Video Game Community Examiner and after three months of writing received a promotion and second title writing for the national site in addition to the San Francisco site. 

On November 2, 2010 I was flown to Austin, Texas to attend a press only event for an upcoming game. 


I'm seeking an entry-level position in a company where my skills and interests would be put to use, such as a video game company or Web site.
