I am always curious about the world around me and reading is one of the best ways to do that. I’m always on a book per week challenge and will talk your ear off about what I’m currently reading.


I am a gamer. I love video games (Ludiphile is my own created word). It’s a passion I’ve had since I was 5 years old. Interactive mediums such as video games will be the way of the future sooner than we know.
