was brought into the world in Pittsburgh, Pa in
1979. I have been playing games since Atari made
games featuring little people made out of squares.
I remember playing games like Demon Attack, Adventure,
Asteroids, Pitfall and many others. I also remember
playing on the old Odyssey Sytem. I've had the
original Nintendo Entertainment System, Super
Nintendo, and even had a Sega Genesis. Road Rash
2 was a favorite game of mine on that system.
For a while I really did not bother with video
games. Never even had a Playstation 1.
I had for sometime been into costumes and costuming
though. In 1998 or so, I was looking up Star Wars
stuff online and noticed that a small group of
people had formed a Stormtrooper costuming group.
The armor looked amazing and I just had to get
involved with that. After that I got more and
more into costumes, even made an obscure character
from G.I. Joe named Barbecue. But talking to some
friends of mine online I got to hear a bit about
Silent Hill. I had a Playstation 2 and was busy
blasting skulls open on Socom 2 but the more I
heard about Silent Hill the more I wanted to play
the games, especially Silent Hill 2. When I got
the game I couldn't stop playing it. I played
it at night wearing headphones connected to my
stereo which was connected to my Playstation 2.
What a great experience! I cannot say enough good
things about that game. I was inspired to make
a James costume but that one turned out rather
cheap and was made from an old jacket I had so
I tossed it. After that I moved onto Pyramid Head.
Now that was a challenge but well worth the time,
money and effort I put into it.
ended up meeting my wife at a strip club called
Heaven's Night. Just kidding. I ended up meeting
her through cosplay.com and our mutual interest
in Silent Hill. I'm happy to have found someone
as special as her.
I graduated from Pittsburgh Technical Institute
in the year 2000 with a Associates Degree in Graphic
I enjoy building websites, creating graphics,
making costumes, building props, and acting.
