I live in the UK, I am 23 years old and have been a gamer all my life. I studied psychology, sociology, english literature and IT in college and went on to study psychology and IT in university. Aside from gaming my greatest passions are rock music, reading and writing. In my spare time I am a novelist, I write a mixture of science fiction and fantasy, and I also keep an autobiographical account of my life although at present I am unpublished.
