So a little about myself, huh? Well, I'm a pretty simple dude. I enjoy a lot of the same stuff most do – movies, dining out, hanging with friends. It’s my hobbies where things take a turn for the weird. I am a collector of Transformers. Yes, those same robots in disguise from the 1980’s. I have everything from the toys, to all 4 seasons of the 80's cartoon on DVD, to the animated movie from '86, to all of the current movies, to the video games, to the shirts, and even my car has an Autobot emblem on the hood. So, yes, I'm a fan. I am a collector of video games as well. I still own the Nintendo my parents got for me and my sister when we were kids with about 40 games. Yes, it still works and I play it from time to time. I am a huge fan of the Sony PlayStation. I own every PlayStation console with a multitude of games for each one. In retrospect, to say I’m a geek is an understatement. Thanks for taking the time to get to know me a little. Just sit back and relax, crack open your favorite beverage and I’ll do the entertaining.
