I am a math college professor, born in New Jersey, grew up in San Jose CA and currently live in Iowa. I enjoy cats, baseball, hockey, science fiction and all types of gaming.

My Video Gaming

I'll call myself a Super Metroid randomizer runner. I'm still working on the speed part. I have been playing the game since it came out my senior year in high school (giving away my age for those that want to do the math) and am working hard to improve. I also like to play retro games from the NES, SNES and the the various Gameboy incarnations.


Please no politics or religion in chat Please be respectful of everyone And have fun!

Some Shout Outs

To everyone who has complimented me on my commentary. This truly does not go unnoticed and I really appreciate it. And the rest of the SM speedrunning community for all the encouragement!
