Biography

I grew up in a small northern Maine town called Eagle Lake in the 90s and early 2000s. I didn't have cable or satellite until later in childhood, all I had was just few select films and a NES. Because of this I spent a lot of time doodling and building things with Legos, not to mention gaming.

In Elementary school I started tinkering with computers. From second grade I knew I wanted to do something with computers some day. By high school I was programming websites and building levels in Half-Life 2. Eventually I decided to go to school for game art and design in Atlanta, Georgia.

Past times include cross-country skiing, gaming and listening to Yes. I'm also an avid Nintendo collector and own all their home consoles.


Archiving

Another thing I have fun doing, when possible, is to help the video game archiving community. I do this by scanning or taking taking high resolution photos of uncommon video game cover art and accessories. I feel like saving imagery from box art is important (especially for games that came out last century) because as time goes on, cheap cardboard boxes will eventually fall apart and decompose. Some of my scans can be found on my archive page. Also be certain to see my YouTube channel for a bunch of Nintendo related content.
