I've been a fighting game player most of my life, ever since I was a kid in elementary playing Street Fighter 2. Played everything from Street Fighter to King of Fighters to Tekken and Mortal Kombat. I love systems and mechanics and seeing various components shift and evolve in the metagame. I later traveled for during my university days at San Jose State University for GGXX, SC2, CvS2, and T5 tournaments in Northern California. While I don't travel much anymore, I still play everything.
I am continuously impressed by the fighting game community's ability to come together and help each other, inspiring me to contribute to SRK as well.
