Answering questions, writing reviews and playing with tech is what i do best. Love myself some pizza and a good game to play, after i finish my work of course. My #1 skill would have to be procrastination, but once i get stuck into my work i can do it for hours. I love what i do and hope you all love reading it and interacting with me!
