Video games. It's what I love more than anything else. I've been writing about them since 1996 and in recent years I have grown interested in their preservation and history.

A lot of my energy goes into YouTube. On It Came From The Collection I explore and document the ephemera of my video game collection, and preserve vintage commercials, programs, and infomercials about gaming.

After striking a nerve with viewers of my DELISTED videos I decided to dive deep into these extinct games and start Delisted Think of it as the Wikipedia of the video game afterlife.

I have also covered the video game music scene as a contributing editor at Original Sound Version. I also helped do most of the coding and design of the site's 2017 visual refresh.

Finally, I maintain a personal gaming blog at and share more of my collection (and life) on Instagram.

By day I am a Quality Assurance Analyst researching business requirements, designing test plans and use cases, and running our software through its paces.
