Bio: Let's have some good games of trivia, that's what we're here for after all. I am an editor for Hobbies and Sci/Tech as well as a FunTrivia Administrator. If you have any inquiries related to any of those issues, my mailbox is always open for you!
As far as quiz writing goes, I really like to write about what tickles my fancy and venture into the unknown just as much as I like to share my passions. Studying something new to the point where I feel comfortable to write about it is very satisfying - just before you try that yourself, please be sure you are very comfortable with the authoring process and rules.
***Please note that I cannot change site code - bug reports that require code fixes should be made on the forum!***
