General Interests

Video Games


I have been playing games for as far back as I can remember, probably around the same time I started taking piano lessons. I have always enjoyed listening to the music that accompanies the games I play, but it really wasn't until I stumbled across SquareSound that fateful day, when I realized they actually had piano sheet music for Final Fantasy. I was so excited, because I had lost interest in the piano for several years and played only because I was teaching. Being able to play my favourite video game music on the piano brought back so many wonderful memories. I played the piano for 10 years starting at the age of 6. After I completed Grade 10 of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Canada, I taught a few beginner students, and I have been teaching ever since.

I joined the SquareSound forums back in November 2002 and was asked to help moderate the debate forum a couple of months later. I have been a moderator there and Square Enix Music Online since, contributing reviews whenever I can. I have played almost all the Final Fantasy games that have been released in the US. Since I don't have as much time these days to play an in depth RPG, I do play a wide variety of games on several platforms.

Aside from video games and video game music, I love to snowboard except I need to drive at least 2+ hours to get to Tahoe. In the summer I go to Tahoe and hit the same slopes, this time to go downhill mountain biking. I enjoy learning new things, trying new foods, going to new places, and meeting interesting people. I love animals, especially my dog Bailey. I have a lot of hobbies, except I don't have the time to devote nearly enough attention to each of them. I enjoy reading, writing, and I love eating — especially Japanese food and desserts in general. Once in a while, I'll crave a nice slab of steak and potatoes.

Being a part of Square Enix Music Online has allowed me to "meet" many new and different people from all over the world. I am grateful and proud to be a part of this community who share many similar interests. There are plenty of talented musicians, composers, artists, writers, and performers here and you don't even have to look that hard to find them. Everyone who has contributed to this site, in large or small amounts, even the visitors, has made the site what it is today.
