Tech blogger by day and a graphic designer by night. He was ushered in to the gadget world by an Atari and its vices: Frogger and Grand Prix. Little did he know that this was training for the undefeated seasons he would string together in Super Tecmo Bowl as a young lad. He currently lives in the balmy southeast with his wife, newborn son and their cocker spaniel. Oh yeah: he's also a Cheez-It expert.
