" I'm Not a program. I'm a user." Sam Flynn, Tron: Legacy (2010)

To best describe is that ambition and a willing to do something are two of my strongest traits. They've allowed me to go places and do things. Extraordinary things. Maybe not change the world but make someone feel pretty damn good.

I've been playing video games for as long as I can remember. From the days of the Nintendo SNES and the SEGA Genesis to the PlayStation 3 and the Playstation Vita, gaming has been a big part of me. I like them for their art, creativity, gameplay, and most importantly, FUN! Fun is what matters. What's the point in playing a game if it is not fun? Everything else is secondary.

Now I game on Sony's platforms as a member of the PlayStation Nation. I'm a gaming enthusiasts and I respect other games and their platforms (At least when they are not restricting me)
