My brother and I have played the Pokemon TCG competitively for about 7 years now. In that time, we’ve competed at the highest level and done pretty well. Here is a quick list of my personal achievements in the game:

Aside from Pokemon, I have a wonderful wife who supports me in all the things I do, a smart and beautiful little daughter who has never failed to make a person smile, and three cats. I like to paint abstract works. Soccer is a favorite sport of mine. I plan on writing a novel someday. My wife Paige tells me I’m a great chef. Play me in Halo sometime — I’ll beat you!

Professionally, I work at an organization in downtown Winston Salem called the iCan House. We help kids to adults who have social challenges, usually in the form of autism or Asperger’s Syndrome. I’m the Program Developer there, meaning I write the curriculum, facilitate groups, and aid in the development of new programs. I left a fairly cushy job at an insurance company to do this because it makes a difference.

I value determination and balance in life, and I think convenience to be a true enemy to mankind.
