Thanks for visiting my profile,
I am here almost exclusively on the VideoGameGeek side with the rare trip over to BGG. I became a VGG admin near the end of 2014 and I deal with entries and corrections in most areas. I like to collect video game related art books, soundtracks, and occasionally other merchandise. I rarely part with any of my video game collection and I use Video Game Box Protectors
, which I highly recommend to anyone who wants to protect their collection.
Aside from video games, I’m an artist and love to work with traditional media, primarily pencil, marker, or ink and occasionally work on and paint models. I’m a huge nature lover and currently live with a Pomeranian, Pom-corgi mix, finches, Madagascar hissing cockroaches, and I am an avid fish keeping hobbyist. My outdoor avian friends include pheasants and quail. I also keep several cacti, various house plants, and a garden.My Avatar:
If you are wondering just what my avatar depicts, it is a pixel image of a pelagic aeolid nudibranch. A shell-less gastropod mollusk in the family Glaucidae. It is called Glaucus atlanticus
, or more commonly the blue angel, blue dragon, or sea swallow. They float upside down and are carried along by the winds and ocean currents. It feeds on jelly fish and has a painful sting that may cause fever, shock, and interference with heart and lung function, as well as death in rare cases.
