Originally, a native of the Pacific Northwest, I am a gamer an activist currently living in San Diego, CA. I'm founder and President of the non-profit, semi-professional gaming organization called Axxium - which is returning from a long break. Our motto is "gaming with purpose" and we use online gaming to help promote and support positive causes.
I'm also a designer, advertising and marketing nut, and an overall nice guy - so please don't be shy to ask more about me.
I love a bit of everything! Right now, I'm into a lot of "glitch" music (such as The Glitch Mob). Also, I'm a big fan of original types of heavy/death metal (Winds of Plague, Attila, etc).
Children of Men, Stargate, Dumb and Dumber, Grandma's Boy, Matrix series, Lord of the Rings series, The Fifth Element, Almost Heroes... and tons more.
Anything that helps further self improvement or deep thought.
Axxium! As well as helping educate about chronic pain and ways to help people with issues of depression and other disabilities.
