My journey on the path of gaming journalism began in 2016. Eager to learn the trade but much less eager to plunk down tens of thousands of dollars on a journalism degree, I instead spent about $15 on a domain name and began blogging about video game news and chronicling my adventures playing Nuzlocked Pokemon. Doing this helped hone my then-nonexistent journalism skills, and I eventually managed to sneak my way into GameSkinny’s Journalist Training Program, where I further developed by learning the ins and outs of SEO, guide writing, news reporting, and interviewing. I was even fortunate enough to be invited back as a senior mentor for the program, where I tackled editing. These days, you can find most of my work over at TechRaptor.
I consider myself to be very well-rounded as both a gamer and journalist. As someone who’s been playing video games since before I could read, I’ve seen a lot from this industry and tend to take a very anti-hype/anti-outrage stance on issues. I’m someone who prefers to praise the good instead of bashing the bad, and I want my voice to be a positive one.
I particularly enjoy writing news, guides, and interviews, but am comfortable with all types of articles, games, and topics. I am extremely thorough with my research and am no stranger to being tasked with covering previously-unfamiliar subjects. I’m also trained in SEO and visual formatting, hence this image of me with Kylo Ren at the Shanghai Disney Resort to help break up the text on this page.
Since I’m sure you’re a busy person and don’t have time to hunt down everything I’ve ever written, I will just give you some samples of my work here. If you like what you see and are interested in working with me, then feel free to get in touch.
