I began attending computer programming courses when I was just 10 years old.
At 23 I set out overseas with my shiny new MCSE (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer) on a quest for adventure, only to fall in love and fling that thing called a career out the window (or so I thought).
Later, my passion for creativity and computers came to the forefront again, and I am now an independent creative with a graphic design business, various internet properties and for about 2 years I did some design work for this bunch of guys called Method, and still occasionally help out when my job allows. Perhaps you’ve heard of them?
I have been blogging on various platforms since 2004 and love the mediums ability to put great content out there at the touch of a button.

What made me decide to try World of Warcraft
It was the Chuck Norris advertisements on television that eventually convinced me to try out World of Warcraft.
I’ve always been a fan of strategy games e.g. Age of Empires I, II and III, Starcraft etc, and more than a few Christmases’ ago I was given Warcraft III. I have never really been a fan of FPS (first person shooter) games, but I had enjoyed the Tomb Raider series on Playstation, and from the advertisement, the style of game play looked similar, in that you control one persons movements.
When the ads on TV offered ‘play for free to Level 20’ and I had some free time, I thought, “Why not?” and tried it out.
You can guess how things went from there 😉
