what got you hooked on gaming?
Oh geez, there's so many.  I've been playing games as early as I can remember.  I think my first console was a SEGA Genesis.  I would play Battle Toads, Mortal Kombat (the original), that old Lion King platformer (so good LOL).  My friend growing up owned (well his parents did) a movie/game rental store, so we would get to play all the games for free!

what do you do for a living?
Sr. Software Engineer for a big financial institution.

 

tell us 3 interesting facts about yourself

  • My favorite sport is Ultimate Frisbee.  I played on our college team and I'd totally get rid of football or basketball to adopt it as a national sport instead.

  • I've lived in 6 different states and over 20 different houses growing up (I've stopped counting).  In case you were wondering - Virginia, New York, Tennessee, Illinois, West Virginia, Pennsylvania.  I currently live in Pittsburgh, PA!

  • I did stand up comedy at an open mic night!  Also, I love stand up if that wasn't apparent LOL

 

do you have a pet?
Yes, I have two cats.  A 14 year old Nebelung (Dusty) which came as a package deal with my wife, and a 6 month old Bengal kitty (Mazikeen)!

what's your ideal way to spend the weekend?

I'm an introvert so I love just hanging out with my close friends, relaxing, enjoying the nice weather, but my wife is an extrovert so I inevitably get dragged out to the clubs LOL.

what got you hooked on gaming? 

My very first console was SEGA so I'd have to say the game that officially got me hooked was Sonic and Knuckles. But I need to give credit where credit is due and also mention Mario 64, Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time, and Warcraft III. Oh and also NES Punchout.

 

what do you do for a living? 
I am a NetSuite Functional Consultant. A common question I'm asked is what is NetSuite and the easiest way to explain it is that it's an accounting system in the cloud.

 

tell us 3 interesting facts about yourself

  • I have dual citizenship (US/Brazil).

  • I played Rugby in college

  • I dabble with guitar

 

do you have a pet?
No, but I've had 4 cats throughout the course of my life. They're all still living just not living with me :). My next pet is going to be a dog. 

what's your ideal way to spend the weekend?

Early morning hikes followed by some light day drinking with friends/family at some cool location followed by a late night gaming session.

what got you hooked on gaming?
I started playing NES games like Contra and Ninja turtles with my dad when I was young along with the classic Gameboy with games like pokemon red and bugs bunny.  Only really got started in online games with Socom and the online adapter on the PS2.  We used to get free time in the computer class room in grade school which we all used to hop on and play runescape together introducing me to the MMO genre.

I work construction making and installing eaves-troughs for a living. Hard work but I love it. Just hate working in the heat.

what's your ideal way to spend the weekend?

What would be your ideal way to spend the weekend?  Of I am not spending time with family over or out with family then I love just replacing playing games with guildies.
