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...

Thanks for the rec feedback, hey, so dunno if you remember him, but HD back in his raver days knew you, he knew I liked anime, told me about your site. We chated a bit wayyy back at some show at the war room. Anyway, in the interterm, your site has gone from good to great. The anirec was always good, but the profile customization options and everything have really pushed it above the rest. I hope to contribute more when I get more time. I imagine you've gotta be feeling the fatigue of running a site like this all by yourself, but keep it up, it rocks.

wuz up!!!!

 thank u for welcoming me!! i bet other people already said this to u but i just have to say it myself. u're awesome!!!! i don't know how u set up this web but i know is not easy, -n- u have done an excelent job!!! i most of the times don't associate myself in any kind of web cause it's just too hard to know where u have to go or where the stuff r at, -n- here everything is so freaking easy to find!! i just wanted to tell u that u did a great job. -n- I would actually want to be a "leader" but since i'm still in middle school (8th grade) -n- i'm going to high school next year, i have to make a lot of "extra" stuff, like reaserch -n- homework, so when i go to high, i'll be able to get in better classes (that's what the teacher says) but i, for some reason, really like this site -n- if i could help to make it better in any way, well , i think that would be awesome. but my other problem is that my english is not good, -n- i read what u said that the person that wants to be leader has to be real good at wrting. so do u think i can still "try out" to be a leader?

i also think it's great to have like a "mini job" for my age, we would call this

-cool-.  :)

School is going fairly well. Classes aren't too hard and I am having tons of fun on the weekends. I am working on some series for you with those specifications as well as a review for the forum on Heroic Age. It just gets kind of hectic sometimes and that is why I am not on as much as over the summer. I am fairly balanced right now so if you have anymore jobs I would love to help out. Oh, and thanks for the message.

My computer has been acting up lately and its time for a format so once I get everything back up and running I'll see if that doesn't fix this Java problem.
