If I ever wanted to be known for something it would be my passion for videogames.
That passion has driven me to do, build, create, and make something of myself. Becoming a journalist was my way in to be doing that of which I love, like wind through a door crack. Videogame journalism is a hard business to get into, be in, and stay in but with anything I do I attack head on and let nothing get me or my work down but…
“If nobody hates you, you’re doing something wrong” – House.
So, I listen to feedback with no judgment and let my work speak for its self and hope that whoever may be reading this hears my message. Videogames are my passion, and if it were not for my dad letting me play the PlayStation One when I was five, I don’t know where I’d be!
Now a little more about me:
My hobbies just won’t be complete if I do not mention movies. They change us, better us, make us think above and beyond what we would ever conceive. The Godfather, Pulp Fiction, The Social Network, and just for fun of it, the Blade Trilogy (Because it is freaking awesome). These movies shaped and changed me and I am better for it.
I’m currently in my first year of college at Radford University studying media studies with a concentration in journalism, and within that same year I managed to become the Editor-in-Chief of the school’s newspaper, the Tartan, while also landing a job at the Career and Talent Development Center helping with different tasks around the office and managing their social media. Why? You may ask, because I love talking, discussing, interacting with other people, and discovering new things.
All n’ all my desired job would be to work for IGN, GameSpot, Ect. Writing and making various content about Videogames could not be more dead-on to my hopes and dreams.
I currently am writing for Brutalgamer.com. Freelancing for them has opened many opportunities and doors for me, plus it’s excellent building my portfolio and covering news/editorials on videogames.
