Hello! I am a PhD-prepared nurse and a fellow Pokémaniac who has been playing the games since I was very young. Crystal was my very first Pokémon game and I fell in love with the series ever since. I'm on hiatus from the series right now, but please feel free to let me know if you have a question or need any help, I love to meet new people! :)

You can also find me hanging out a lot on the VGCollect.com forums. I do a lot of video game database work and editing over there, it's a great site if you like video game collecting with another great community. You can view my very modest collection here.

My discogs music collection.
Other favorite franchises
Silent Hill
Ace Combat
Mega Man Battle Network

Other interests
Reading, choir, vinyl, loose leaf tea, basketball, video game collecting, secular humanism, nursing, nursing research
