1999

About 4 months after I was born my family and I moved to Banbridge

2007

My Dad and I where watching a football match one day and it was Man Utd vs some team i cant remember and Man Utd won so since then much to my Dads disappointment I have been a Man Utd fan

2009

Christmas 2009 i had just gotten a PS3 then my dad had got Uncharted 2: Honor among thieves as well. So we spent the next lot of weeks trying to beat this game and sitting there with him watching him die over and over again was frustrating. However when it was my turn to play I fell in love with this game and in love with gaming in general. This is my favourite game series.

2012

This was the year I discioverd one of the greatest movies of all time. Gladiator!!

Quote from the best scene in the movie

“My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son. Husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next”.

2019

I started studying in Ulster University doing a degree in Interaction design

2020

I was sitting one day wondering what I was going to watch and i remembered that Apple had released a comedy series about a video games company. Is is called Mythic Quest Ravens banquet and I  watched it all a twice in a total of two weeks  

Thats Ian Grimm the creative director of MQ, probably my favourite character. Also he has a class beard.
