Hi! I'm Patrick, and I'm the Managing Editor at TheGamer! I've written previously for Screen Rant, Comic Book Resources, and The Escapist, among others, and have edited a handful of sci-fi literary journals. I'm a graduate of John Abbott College's Liberal Arts program. I'm a reader, writer, editor, and game-player based in Montreal, Canada. I've been an egg flipper, casino banker, bookseller, honest-to-god telephone sanitizer, and now I work as an editor for Valnet, Inc. My passion for language inevitably led me to a career of telling people when they're doing it wrong. My favourite games include Netrunner (a two-player, asymmetrical, cyberpunk, heist competitive card game wherein one player plays the hacker, or Runner, and the other is a Corporation trying to keep its servers secure), World Of Goo, Mass Effect 2, Metroid Prime, and Donkey Kong Country 2.
