My dad handed me a Nintendo controller for the first time when I was two (unplugged of course, making sure I didn't ruin his game) so I could mimic playing. After a few months, he plugged it in to give me a chance to play Jackal (NES game released in 1988). To his surprise, I drove my little red jeep with skill and finished the level with ease. Fast forward two decades and here I am writing about what I grew up on. I have played nearly every system released from Atari to Dreamcast to Current/Next-Gen consoles. In addition to gaming, I'm a father for life, raising my kids on gaming and cherishing the love of my life.
