I began writing professionally with The Wargamer website in 2003 as a PC game reviewer. Around the same time, I started writing book and computer game reviews for Epinions, while doing semi-professional photography work (weddings, sports, outdoor, and studio). 

I joined the Armchair General website shortly before the site and magazine went live, spearheading the gaming coverage, helping with public relations, social media, and community management. I've been contributing book and PC game reviews, and various military history related special projects, since then. 

I contracted with The WarCry Network in 2007, where I wrote the RoleCraft column from May 2007 until June 2010, along with various other MMORPG articles. In July 2011, I signed on as a PC game strategy walkthrough writer with GameFront. 

I'm currently looking to move into a more full-time gaming gig, either writing another gaming column, returning to the front lines of public relations or social media manager, or a combination of all three.
