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.

  • Tabletop games; TCGs, deck building, dice, and board games

  • Open world
  • And Pokemon, of course!
