Hi there! I'm a not-so-normal girl living in Seattle, WA. I work for a software company as a writer of developer documentation, but my background is computer science and programming. In my spare time I enjoy video games, especially console RPGs such as my obsession, Dragon Quest (or old school PC ones such as Ultima aka best games ever, or Sierra adventure classics), anime (duh!), sci fi, movies, my cats, and various other geekery.

I'm Anime-Planet's creator and admin, having built the site in 2001 in a quest to learn MySQL, before becoming the behemoth it is today. Anime-Planet was and is still run by a small handful of volunteers, even though we reach millions of users a month, so a great deal of my time is still spent creating features, running the project, training moderators, etc. If you're interested in helping support the site, check out this link :)

Contacting me:

As much as I'd like to be able to reply to each person who contacts me, I spend the vast majority of all free time working on the site and getting features out the door, so I rarely ever have time to read or reply to comments I get here. Most of the questions I get here are site-related questions that we have teams of moderators or forum sections to help with, and if there were less of those here in the profile, I'd have more time to reply to other comments.

Please make sure you read these notes and link suggestions for the most common site questions I get here. Another way to get in touch is in chat in the evenings, but I'd point you to the same links below if it's site questions. ;)

Thanks for stopping by! And now, enjoy some creepy amazing gifs...

I just went through your "will not watch section" and it surprised me that FMP the second raid is on there! You just didn't like the show or what? Well what ever the reason thats ok.

I also wanted to say hello. Haven't heard from you in a while and I wanted to know how you were doing. Sorry for not chatting to you online, we miss each other when I am on. 

Well thought I would check in with you and see how you were. Talk to you later.

Just passing by to say that i love this website. Great job  sothis 8).

Also am wondering, is it me or the forum is completely  locked up?

For some reason I never wrote a review of Higurashi when I finished it nearly a year ago, and it's probably too late now. Maybe I'll do the same thing that I did for Black Lagoon, and review both seasons once Ni Kai is out.

Cheers to that.  Fruits Basket, and any anime like it that brings overwhelming positivity to a climactic everybody-hug-ending is officially my new vice!
