My name is Joe. I was born in Sacramento, California in the 1980s and fell in love with video games shortly after. I discovered a magazine called Electronic Gaming Monthly in 1994, decided writing about video games was what I wanted to do when I grew up, and took lots of writing classes in school.
Fast forward a bunch of years and I met a group of friends on an Animal Crossing message board that I liked a lot and spent most of my free time talking with. One of them was a girl. A few years later the girl and I decide we like each other, I get on a plane to Boston, some other stuff happens, and now we’re married and have a beautiful baby girl.
I never made it as a games writer (or a games YouTuber) but I never lost my desire to create things. This blog is just a way for me to get back to writing, my original creative passion, in the little free time I have as a dad.
That’s the quick version! In addition to my family and video games I’m also a really big fan of The Simpsons, soda, wearing shorts, cartoons, the Boston Celtics, takoyaki, being nice to people and dinosaurs.
