Some Things I Love
I’m a bit of a Jack-of-All Trades, though I’m making every effort to become a master of at least some of these things. The result of my various passions is a chaotic mess, but I’m hoping that this website will help to organize the madness.
One of the things I am most passionate about is Game Design and Development. I channel this passion through my company: Rhetrosoft, LLC.Visit Rhetrosoft
Not only do I love listening to music, I also enjoy creating it! I have two albums released under the title ‘4Pages Burning’ and a third album is in the works, promising to be my best one, so far!Listen to 4Pages Burning
Writing has been a passion of mine for twenty years–really, since I could first put a word on a page. I have always had a story in my head that just needed to find a way out. I’ve even published a book!Buy a Copy
Who doesn’t love food? Since going vegan, I’ve found a whole new area of food that’s just waiting to be discovered. It has led to experimenting in the kitchen and trying restaurants I never would have considered!See Food Posts
One thing I fully intend to start doing is traveling more frequently–even if it’s just a weekend trip. I already have plans to go to Iceland next year so I can knock off a bucket list item: seeing the northern lights!Read About Travel
Things I Support
There are so many wonderful charities, individuals, teams, and studios out there that have earned my support. Whether they’re non-profits, twitch streamers, tutorial-creators, or game devlopers, they all get a bit of my income. If you’re looking for someone/something to support, here are some that I highly recommend.
Kansas City Pig Rescue Network
Chariy for Gamers with Disabilities
Independent Game Developer
Chain of Hope
Shelter for Abused Animals
Here are some things I’ve created that are readily available to the public.
A Coming-of-Age novel that takes a realistic look at the angst-ridden journey one takes while growing up. The main character is raw, real, and easy-to-hate, but you can’t help but find something relatable in his story.
How I Ruined My Life
Say It If You Mean It is the second album released under the artist name 4Pages Burning. It is an 8-track instrumental album with soul, lounge, and glitch-hop influences. This is the precursor to the third album: Black Light.
