Bio: I’m a bit younger than most of the guys on the World Gaming crew, but what I lack in old school gaming knowledge I make up for in spirit or whatever the thing that the young guy is supposed to have. Currently, I’m a sophomore at Sarah Lawrence College, where I study Writing, Film, and History (both modern and Roman/Greek). I’m pretty big into military history as well, and this definitely translates into my love of all Total War games. I also write for several other publications, but World Gaming is by far the most rewarding and has the best dynamic between the staff. One day, I have aspirations to break into the Comic Book industry as a writer, but we’ll see where that goes. But my big love is games. As a gamer, my gateway console was a Sega Game Gear that my grandma gave me when I was six years old. I’d spend hours and hours playing titles such as Sonic Triple Trouble, Sonic Chaos, Shinobi, X-Men and many others. But it wasn’t until the second grade when my parents got me an N64 did I start getting into console gaming. After that, I was totally immersed. Dozens of days of Hebrew School and Public School were skipped, ignored, or gotten out of by playing sick as a result of Donkey Kong 64, Banjo-Kazooie, Mario Kart 64 and other classic titles. Since then, I’ve evolved as both a gamer and a professional and at one point lead a Starcraft clan called Clan Haven. But my time as a gamer and a writer is far from over, and is only evolving with World Gaming/p>
