Also: Autism and LGBTQ advocate for representation in games, and a firm believer that good representation of minorities and vulnerable groups is essential for compassion and empathy in our industry and the world. I'm an 80's synthwave and rad hair guitarist fan with over three decades of game-playing experience in every genre, with a fondness for action titles, arcade & simulation racing games, RPGs, first-person shooters, and classic pixel art retro games. Arms dealer of NERF weapons and consumer of guacamole. Adorable hyper visionary odd-ball who loves breaking boxes.
Born in sunny southern California and currently based in the greater Seattle area, I love the west coast (particularly the PNW), good food, diverse culture, and being surrounded by groundbreaking technology. I have two rescue cats named Ezma and Loki. I'm a nail polish enthusiast, a sci-fi nerd, and avid otaku. My pronouns are She/They, and I'm currently in my 20th year of marriage! Life is good!
