At a certain age, you forget your childhood dreams. Aspiring astronauts and rock stars become accountants or sales reps. It just happens. Video games won’t pay the bills, right?
I attended UC Santa Cruz where I earned semi-sensible degrees in Classical Studies and Art History writing papers on the games I was playing as often as I could. Graduating with honors landed me a respectable job in the Museum industry. After ten years climbing the corporate ladder, I knew respectable just wasn’t cutting it.
Game Informer accepted me as an intern for the Fall 2018 term and I quit my secure day job to follow a dream. Luckily, my gamble paid off and thousands of people began reading the articles I wrote. I learned about games writing, helped to make podcasts, and forged relationships with people in the industry.
Now as a freelance video game journalist, I’ve penned articles for multiple great gaming sites. I provided on-the-ground GDC 2019 coverage in one of my first assignments for Destructoid, and explored issues facing independent creators like gaining success and building partnerships for The Indie Game Website. I’ve even made a few podcast appearances, most recently on The MinnMax Show. I’ve done a lot of cool things I wouldn’t have dreamed of a few years ago and I can’t wait to see what I get to do next.
