Author has written 9 stories for Fushigi Yuugi, Legend of Eli Monpress, and Fullmetal Alchemist.

Hallo! Thanks for checking out my profile (or for those who got stranded here by accident, I hope you find it worthwhile in the least).

I'm a 24-year-old software engineer, who loves to read, write, and draw in my spare time. Currently I work for this really cool company that develops OPAC for various libraries around the world. It's my first 'real' full-time job ever, and it's both stressful and wonderful at the same time! I'm on the front-end team, so I develop that stuff you see on your browsers. Front-end is definitely my thing. I am hoping to pursue a graduate degree researching Web Technologies, and how it affects the production and consumption of art and literature. I really like to explore the intersection of technology and storytelling!

I am a big fan of the Fantasy genre, especially if it involves adventure and political intrigue. Also, romance as a side dish, not a main course. I always say, I will read a book with no romance, but would not read it if there's too much. Thus, I find myself with selections mostly from children's Fantasy lit and select adult Fantasy lit. Occasionally, I might be able to chance upon a perfectly balanced YA, but I don't count on it too much.

My Favourite Books

  1. The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner
  2. The Legend of Eli Monpress by Rachel Aaron
  3. The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale
  4. Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
  5. A Matter of Magic by Patricia C. Wrede
  6. Farsala Trilogy by Hilari Bell

I've seen several animes in the course of my life; I used to watch more of it when I was younger, so I'm more well-versed in old-school animes than the newer ones coming out now. In 2013, I was sucked into the world of anime once again by Fullmetal Alchemist.

My Favourite Animes

  1. Fullmetal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa
  2. Dragonball by Akira Toriyama
  3. Fushigi Yuugi by Yuu Watase

Fushigi Yuugi?? Yeah... I know I said I didn't like too much romance, but I was introduced to FY when I was around 8, and I think it had a lot of emotional impact on me as a child, haha. Had I watched it now, I don't think I would have liked it as much, to be honest.

What else should I say?

Well, I don't want to bore you. I'll leave it short for now. If you want to reach out to me for any reason at all, I am available through PM. I'm also available on one of these avenues:

  1. LiveJournal (mostly book reviews and several rants)
  2. DeviantArt (artwork)
  3. Tumblr (complementary to DA)
