About
Just your average Joe who works a full time job and tries to squeeze in gaming, and the occasional television show, or professional wrestling program.

Grew up during the 80's so did see a lot of awesomeness like cartoons such as Transformers and Captain N the Game Master to video games such as the 8-bit and 16-bit era of gaming. Transformers plays a big part in my life because of the cartoon and I'll always hold my classic games closer to my heart than modern games. You could say I'm an old man with these kind of actions.

Of course there is the figure collecting that started with the Final Fantasy VII and VII figures but didn't blossom until my best friend purchased me the first Aegis from Persona 3 by Alter. Later I found Tomopop (through Retroforce GO?), became a part of the community. Then I made an off hand comment about a position here in a comment and was offered a position on the team. I cannot be more thankful for such an opportunity.

Though I no longer write for the site, I still check in on the folks here and to see how much it is growing.
