After trying my hand at making games, I realized I was much better at writing about them.
I got started back in the mid 90's with Pangea Software's Power Pete, a little top-down shooter that came pre-installed on the family's Macintosh Performa. After pouring hundred of hours into that and the X-Wing and TIE Fighter games, I made my way to the console space in 1997 with the original PlayStation and a copy of Madden 97.
When college time came around, I got this silly idea in my head that making games was for me, and set out to get into the industry. After landing a Master's Degree in Game Design, I quickly figured out that the classroom did not equal reality, but for whatever reason writing has always come naturally for me.
So here I am.
Now with over three years of experience, I've written for GameZone and GameSkinny, culminating in a portfolio consisting of over 1,700 news articles, reviews, previews, guides, interviews, and editorials on a wide variety of entertainment topics including video games, TV, movies, and technology.
