RPGs have been part of my life ever since the first time I played Chrono Trigger, and once you play a game like that there is really no going back. I am essentially married to the genre as I met my wife thanks to it: if she hadn't been using a Final Fantasy X wallpaper I am sure we wouldn't be together.
We have a tradition in my family, and that is to name all of our pets after a JRPG character. So far we have a Sephiroth, Fang, and Irvine (this last one should have been called Kefka). On that note, my son's name is Oliver, a name my wife chose after the main character in Ni no Kuni.
I worked as a Data Manager for a multinational company for many years. I am currently majoring systems integration engineering, but took a break from it all to spend more time with my family and my hobby.
I enjoy writing and gaming as they both bring me some kind of comfort. Leaving the real world for a couple of hours, even minutes, can be a very relaxing experience and to that purpose, no genre does it better than RPGs. If you think about it, it's kind of crazy, one second you are a regular Joe paying the bills and then next second you are a soldier fighting for his kingdom.
Writing is not all too different when you are sitting down in front of your computer putting together an article or creating a story, you are no longer in the office you are somewhere else; it could be a world of memories or a realm of fantasy, the possibilities are endless.
I have been covering gaming news for a while now but only on social media channels, so being here on RPGFan and writing stories focused on my favorite genre is going to be a very satisfying experience and I hope you all enjoy reading my content as much as I enjoy writing it.
