I was born in Arizona, and have lived in the Phoenix/Glendale area my entire life. I currently live in North Glendale with my beautiful wife and our increasingly feisty Jack Russell terrier, Icky. I’m a big fan of the Arizona Cardinals, Diamondbacks, the Phoenix Suns, and the ASU Sun Devils (my alma mater). I have wonderful friends, an amazing family, and a job that I truly enjoy. Life is good! Aside from my love of arcade games and pinball, I have several other interests and hobbies.
I play guitar (as well as some other gizmos) in a band called 30 Fathom Grave. Our 3rd album, “Aurora,” (our first instrumental record) was released on June 9th, 2017. We’re on Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, and pretty much all of the usual places. Check us out if you like bands like Nine Inch Nails, Deftones, Failure, etc.
I have a deep love of Halloween and horror movies that dates all the way back to my childhood. I go all out when it comes to decorating the house for Halloween, and admittedly, some of the decorations stay up all year long. I have a full tattoo sleeve on my right arm which is made up of portraits of classic Universal Studios Monsters, I collect horror scores/soundtracks on vinyl, and I hit up horror conventions whenever I have the opportunity.
One of my other hobbies is brewing beer with my dad. My taste in beer is pretty varied, but I tend to gravitate to IPAs, APAs, and more hoppy varieties. I also really like sours. I keg my own brews, and after recently completing a pretty sweet project that deviates from your typical kegerator system, I’ll always have three cold beers on tap just outside of my downstairs game room.
I also like hiking, going to the gym, and trying to ward off Father Time by staying active.
If you ever spot me at an arcade event or just out and about, please say hi!
