I'm an Indiana boy born and raised. Ever since I was 7 I lived out in the country. My dad purchased 43 acres of land complete with a 14 ft. deep pond. Mainly for hunting, and ever since I was 3 my dad always took me hunting with him. Thanks to him I learned a lot about the wilderness, like camping, fire building, skinning game, gutting bucks, climbing trees, animal tracking, swimming, and a few other things.
I am also an avid billards player. My first job I started working in my dad's pool hall when I was 16, and I have already been asked to join a couple of bar teams next year after I turn 21.
I've also owned a nintendo since I was 5, and I have been gaming ever since. First game I ever played was Mario brothers/duck hunt. After I upgraded to snes I found one of my all time favorites, Super Metroid. Snes was probably my golden age though. Not because the games where all better, but because so many of them where great compared to recently where there is maybe 4 or 5 games per-console released a year that are really worth investing time in, what I mean is on Snes all the games had high replay value while it's so hard to find a game that I could actually play more then once now. Although next-gen is looking very promising so far with so many great looking games announced. Then again it's still too early to decide because so many of them are still in development.
