About

I am a twenty-something male, currently living in the Greater Toronto Area, Canada.  I recently graduated with a degree in science, and enjoy writing part-time, either through blogs or through fiction and fanfiction.

I am an avid fan of the massively multiplayer online RPG known as World of Warcraft, and discovered blogs pertaining to the game itself.  In 2008, I started my frist blog, Frost is the New Black; it is still active and over a year old.

Before blogging, I was always an active writer of fanfiction, particularly of the Naruto anime series, which is probably the source of my love for Japanese storytelling, history, and culture in general.  In late 2008, I watched the anime Last Exile, and fell in love with the steampunk aesthetic.

My two interests in Japanese culture and steampunk combined overnight into a strange hybrid that I dubbed steampanku (Su-teem-pan-ku), which led to the creation of the blog you are currently reading.

My favourite authors are William Gibson, Ian R. Macleod, and Haruki Murakami.
