I'm a gamer and digital artist in my free-time. My first games were Sonic The Hedgehog and Spryo The Dragon, and I've been entranced ever since. My favorite things to do are design characters and develop stories. I'm a PS2 and Gamecube kid, so I get a lot of inspiration from JRPGs and early 2000's 3D platformers.

  • Sandbox games
  • 3D platformers

  • Customer-Support-Supervisor

I specialize in providing outstanding customer service and have a hunger for technology. I started gaming as a young child on my Nintendo and also thoroughly enjoyed the Final Fantasy series through my teenage years.

  • Support-Specialist

Heyo! I'm a certified and professional crazy cat person first and foremost! But, when I'm not cuddling my kitties then I'm usually dabbling in a little bit of everything else. Writing is one of my huge passions! Be it roleplaying, fanfiction, or original stories - I do a little of all of them. I do a bit of graphic design, I'm a huge Marvel nerd, I've invested time in waaay too many TV shows, and I'm an avid gamer of the tabletop variety. My favorite videogame is pretty much any of The Elder Scrolls games, but I'm partial to Elder Scrolls Online.
