I've always loved video games since I began playing with my older brother on the Super Nintendo. He had a lot of the Super Nintendo's best games, so I grew up playing games like Super Metroid, A Link to the Past, Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger. Gaming was already my primary interest, but it was forever cemented when the Nintendo 64 launched with Super Mario 64. I was absolutely amazed exploring its 3D worlds and I then knew for sure that video games would continue to evolve and offer experiences no other medium could top.
Since I've been playing video games my entire life, I always knew I wanted to get into the video game industry whether it was making games or writing about them. Since high school and all the way through college I've been working towards my dream job of becoming a video game journalist by writing for my school papers, pursuing an English Major, blogging on Game Informer, and interning at Game Informer. I really enjoy discussing and sharing video games with other people, so that is what I really want to do now and in the future.
