I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my life, save for four years in the US Army. I have a BA Degree from Western Washington University in Communications, am fluent in Russian and am a Certified Competent Toastmaster. I started playing Battletech with the 2nd Edition while in college, and kept with it off and on to the present day. In addition to becoming an artist with CSO, I am a CDT Agent, and I write fan fiction on the Battlecorps site. On Battlecorps and on the CBT Forums I go by the alias plkangus. Professionally, I am a Technical Writer/Lean Manufacturing specialist in-between permanent employment. Gaming keeps me sane, most of the time :) I am very proud to be able to represent the best game company in the human sphere (or anywhere else), and to enjoy its further development as a participant and a fan.
