I'm an intern architect by trade, but the overarching theme of my life has always been trying to keep up with the newest, coolest technology. Ever since I picked up an NES controller, I've been hooked on the latest and greatest gadgets, gizmos, and toys. Whether it's gaming, mobile phones and accessories, or PCs and Apple products, I'm interested.

I use many Apple products in my daily life, such as the iPhone 5, iPad 4, and my MacBook Pro. I also recently built an HTPC for my living room in order to stream videos to my HDTV. I'd like to say I'm a pretty well rounded techie.
