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 have not looked at the reviews and what other users here or anywhere else for that matter tought of Tekkon Kinkreet, but i guess from your comment that there wasn't an overwhelming bunch who disliked it, which i would have thought after seeing it that it would have been trashed in most reviews. But i guess the taste is very different, some may like it and some may hate it.

About my profile: yeah i guess i should finish it, i did a quick brushing through the "Top 5" list, but there are most likely being an update on thoose since it didnt really like some of my spellings it seemed (i guess i should have taken my english lesson in school i bit more attention), it didnt want to save some i entered so instead of looking up the correct spelling i replaced them with some others, and also the order of thoose in there now i think i would like to change. Might actually have been easier with a "Top 10" list, more space to sort them out on.

My biography will be on hold for a while cause i'm terrible at writing thoose things.

But i will finish it.... in the future... some day... soon, i promise. :)

(Sorry if my English is unclear and my grammar really sucks)

Hi! I've just read your profile and found you're the site founder.

I must say it's a great site, I've used anime-planet a lot in the past for the anime recommendations feature (a very good idea). But I only registered days ago (lazyness).

I've picked my watched/want to watch/etc in a breeze. And I like the rest of the web a lot. I hope I can take some time in the future to make some recommendations.

Wow! You learned nice sentences in French! ^_^ I hope you actually know what you said and that is not personal... XD

I really like you website!!! The best in the world!!! I don't know how you find all this time to do all this, but this is really a good work!

I saw that you like a lot the work from studio 4C... Me too, I also like very much their work and I am currently watching some of their animes...

Yep, I think you put off putting up the first season of slayers synopsis and forgot. :p  I'll just resend it to you, saves you the trouble of digging up buried e-mails....
