About the author
I am a long-time anime fan that’s been watching since the days of Robotech. I began collecting at age 13, with the dubbed VHS “Ranma 1/2: Like Water For Ranma.” Since then, I’ve been a hopeless, but happy addict. My anime library currently rests at over 800 discs, and shows no sign of stopping.
I also serve as Editor and Communications Director for Anime Dream. Through Anime Dream, I’ve been given the opportunity to speak with a number of figures in the industry, including Greg Ayres, Laura Bailey, and Japanese pop group Kalafina.
Outside of anime, I make my living as a software engineer for a small Rhode Island-based medical company.
