Author has written 6 stories for Half-Life, Call of Duty, and Mass Effect.

Greetings. I am TheSpazzo.

I'm a reasonably intelligent 17-year old male of Franco-Irish-Germanic-Anglo-Danish-Scot stock living in San Diego, California. When I'm not writing, I enjoy hiking, fishing, weightlifting, reading, gaming, cooking, and sleeping, along with various other things.

So that's pretty much it. I like reviews, and I like constructive criticism even more. I update my profile fairly frequently, so check back here if you're wondering what the heck is going on.

Update (6/5/10): SATs are done! So is the school year (for the most part)! I'll be leaving for Peru around July 3rd (I won't be taking my computer, as the risks far outweigh the benefits), but before that, I'll be frantically updating and uploading more of my stories.
