I started with Dragon Warrior for the NES. Then I discovered Final Fantasy, Crystalis, and Destiny of an Emperor. Back then I only owned a few RPGs, so after I completed those, I supplemented my cravings with sessions of AD&D.

My love with RPGs started with Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest for the NES. I've been playing and collecting RPGs ever since.

I collect mainly the older console RPGs from Japan, which I showcase on my Instagram account. I plan to document them in the future, especially the more obscure titles that were never released out of Japan.

Other than playing video games, I enjoy writing my Godshard series ( ), lifting weights, attending comic/anime conventions, playing outdoors, and spending time with my family.

I had taught English in Switzerland and Japan, and currently work as a police officer.
