My self-summary
Hi! My name is Jack. I'm a nerd. I work as a video game journalist and critic, a perfect fit since I really enjoy writing and playing video games. I have published a book of (probably pretty crappy) poetry and short stories. I like baking and cooking food (significantly better at baking than cooking). I'm a Christian and I do my best to love other people no matter what. There is a lot of badness in this world and I do what I can to brighten up other people's days. I like the (intersectional) feminisms and the social justices and the being nice to peoples (people are often surprised at how often those topics come up when writing about video games).
What I’m doing with my life
I have a degree in English Lit and an emphasis on Medieval History and I use that to write about video games for a national charity that raises money for sick and injured kids! It is pretty much an amazing dream job. The only down side is that I work quite a bit and spend a lot of time alone, so give me an excuse to take a break.

Other than that, I spend a lot of time reading and watching narrative criticism (Film Critic Hulk is everything I aspire to be as a critic), baking, walking dogs, petting dogs, watching Lord of the Rings, and reading awesome books.
I’m really good at
Writing. Smiling. Drinking caffeinated beverages. Playing video games. Laughing. Making people feel special. Eating mac & cheese. Probably other things.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm a fleshy pink (maybe cute?) thing that seems capable of abstract thinking.

Awesome obscure films if you want bonus points/recommendations: Karate Robo Zaborgar, Troll Hunter, Troll 2. I love movies. Let's talk about how great they are! :D

Food: chicken curry with naan, tuna/rice hotdish, scrambled eggs, pancakes, Multi-Grain Cheerios, pizza (especially Crescent Moon Bakery football pizza)

Television: Firefly, The Walking Dead, Cowboy Bebop, The Office, Battlestar Galactica, Flight of the Conchords, Psycho-Pass, Samurai Champloo, Attack on Titan, ONE PUNCH FRIGGIN' MAN

I recently acquired the complete adventures of Ultraman and if you wanna cuddle up and watch/laugh at it with me, you might be my soulmate.

The six things I could never do without
Dogs + Caffeine + Internet X2
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Video games, life, the universe, everything, fish, towels, new stories, imaginary characters, video games, how I can improve myself, how to achieve my goals, how to make other people happy, and video games.

My dream trip to New Zealand...

Why dogs in movies and cartoons are like recently chopped onions for my eyeballs.

Why people feel compelled to add "having fun" to the list of things they enjoy doing. Shouldn't that just be one of those things that doesn't need to be said? Everyone enjoys having fun, right?
On a typical Friday night I am
Working or existing. Sometimes both.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If you mean embarrassing stories, I have more than enough of those, like how I got peed on by a squirrel, gave a eulogy for a balloon, or went to an Awkward Dance and won first prize. Ooor the time my parents tried to set me up with a 16 year old grocery store cashier. Also I love giant monster movies. A lot. I MAY have seen every single Godzilla film ever made. And I love them all (except for Son of Godzilla, that movie blows).

I unironically enjoy the song 'What Is Love' by Haddaway.
