About me

I'm a teen software developer who relishes hacking PHP on the Web, C# on his PC and Objective-C on his Mac. I adore math, Jesus, Apple and π, but not apple pie!

I'm not a hardcore gamer by any rate, but I do play some games, and on the few games that I do play I try to get as close to 100% completion as possible, and sometimes I succeed. Puzzle's probably the genre that gets me the most. You can find me on Steam, where I was formerly known as The Annoying Pyro for quite a while, before I finally decided that being annoying was getting old.

My 5 most favorite games of all time (so you may see me patrolling these tags most often):

  1. The Ratchet & Clank franchise, by Insomniac Games, who are awesome.

  2. The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. I often prefer Knuckles to Sonic though, for some reason.

  3. The reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise. Admittedly, I was never interested in Lara Croft's previous capers, but Crystal Dynamics was right: I'm really captivated by the idea of going through this brand new, character-building adventure of survival with a fellow (albeit fictitious) human being.

  4. The RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise, originally created by the talented Chris Sawyer, who is also awesome.

  5. Team Fortress 2, my favorite class being (although I main as ).

Honorary mention goes to Minesweeper, with my personal records on the Windows 7 version being:

  • Beginner: 5 seconds
  • Intermediate: 28 seconds
  • Advanced: 64 seconds
