On the personal side, I’m a 25 father/husband/superhero. I currently go to school full-time for my Actuarial Science degree and GripYaJoystick is my only “job”. On the gamer side, I’m a lifetime gamer and have been gaming since my father made the mistake of buying me and my brothers an NES one day when I was 5. Before then, I’d only dabbled in a little Atari 2600 here and there, but the NES opened a whole new world for me. So, I played now and then through the NES, SNES, PS1, and various Gameboys, but my parents kept my gaming time severely throttled. When I moved out at 17, all bets were off and I dived right in. Between gaming constantly on the Gamecube/Wii and World of Wacraft, I actually began burning myself out. But, then I bought the Xbox 360, experienced achievements, and became hooked far more than I ever had been before. Now, I consider myself very in the know, researching just about every game on the platform and playing games from every platform in my quest for more achievements. I’m Fire Hawk D: Achievement Hunter!
