A gamer, a chemist, an athlete, a Rubix cube-solving ginger...I'm a little bit of everything. When I do something I truly love, there's nothing that can stop me fro doing anything else - those that have heard my game-obsessed ramblings know that very well!
My love of gaming stems from my parents using games to act as a pseudo babysitter/sibling hybrid (only children FTW). My dad always told me I had a knack for Pong, Dr. Mario, and Duck Hunt (and throw a fit every time the dog laughed at me, but we don't talk about that). Today, not only do I actively play on multiple consoles under the moniker Asuka424, but I enjoy racking up a nice amount of trophies!
Competitively, I tend to stick to the local fare. That being said, I was selected to be a cast member for The Tester Season 3 on the Sony Entertainment Network (PS3 PARADISE HERE I COME!). For a local gamer like me...that was downright awesome!!
Outside of gaming, I graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a B.S. in Chemistry, and furthered my research at Illinois State University. When I'm not doing any of that, I play roller derby using the name Claptrap. I guess my eight years of figure skating as a child paid off yet again! ^_^
