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.

Ok, so I've seen Gungrave spouted about marvelously a few places, I'm intrigued, I'll look into getting it. But if you wouldn't rank it a mark of '10' anymore, what would you rate a perfect '10'?

Hey no problem about "spreading the word" I have seen your site mentioned on bleach portal, everyanime, crunchyroll, tv-links. So no worries, I will be here to stay (if you dont ban me). I am still trying to learn your site. And *blushes trying to start conversations. Sorry about the pointless post in custom sig.

I am very impressed, So the ratings are even compiled into it? It is well organized and "neat" how long did it take you?
