    Backstory

    I have loved video games before I even knew what they were. I also love writing (am working on becoming a successful fantasy author), anime, tabletop roleplaying etc. In college, I was part of a club for all four years named BSFFA (Beloit Science Fiction and Fantasy Association), which should tell you just how much of a nerd I am (if the previous facts didn't)

    Humor has always been a big part of my life. I have been telling jokes since I was single digits and did improv comedy for about eight to ten years (don't remember the exact number). Because of this, humor almost always finds its way into my writing whether I want it to or not.

    In addition to being a comedic nerd, I am anomalously logical, have strange eating habits, and am frankly a weirdo in many respects. But don't take that to be self-deprecating. It is merely a factual statement.
