General Interests

Video Games
Working on Cars


I've been playing games for as long as I can remember. The first game I ever played that really hooked me on game music was Star Tropics for the NES. After that though, I was OBSESSED with the Dragon Warrior series of games, and played all four of the NES games daily for years.

That's where it hit me that game music actually meant something more than just background music for a game. After the speaker in our TV died, I realized very fast that music in games actually MADE the game for me. I couldn't play a game at all! Ever since then though, I've been a huge fan of video game music.

Square Enix Music Online has somehow made me take on an interest for writing about my feelings on these soundtracks. That was an odd realization for me, as I normally hate writing. Regardless of that though, while I may not write a ton of reviews here, I'll continue to provide my opinion until I can't anymore. So, you'll be seeing plenty of me around these parts! Hope those of you reading this are enjoying your stay here!

Site Role

I have an important role behind the scenes at the site. In addition, I've contributed to various interviews, news, and reviews on the site, most of them related to Japanese game music. My current output is limited due to my commitments as a restaurant manager and as a new dad.
