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 graduated from HS in 2003 and went to a local college to complete a 2-year certification for web design. Since then I've done music classes and worked for the Apple Store as a general sales/service employee and Microsoft's Retail group for sales, training, management and even piloted the Surface for Education promotion in 2013. 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 and Titanfall. If there was one TV show I could bring back, it would easily be Firefly. Now I'll drop the mic and walk away.
