Born in '86 and raised in the greater Seattle, WA area. Lived in Phoenix, AZ and Long Island, NY for a few years, but other than that I've spent much of my life in/around Seattle. I consider myself a gamer and use my PC and Xbox One to feed that appetite. A few of my favorites are Halo, Fallout, Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart, Zelda, Worms, Battlefield, Titanfall, Destiny. If there was one TV show I could bring back, it would easily be Firefly.
