Former Digital Trends Contributor
Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada which is quite possibly the best city in the world. Graduated from NYU with an MA in Journalism and East Asian Studies. Did a whole lot of research for my thesis on otaku and their near-religious anime & manga fan culture. I've been gaming since the age of three, when Super Mario Bros first came to life on my NES all those years ago. Now, I've managed to make gaming part of my job description and I couldn't be happier. Favorite game of all time? Easy, it's Chrono Trigger. Nothing can touch that!
