About Me
Canadian by birth and of Danish decent. I now reside in Sin City as they call it. Grew up around cars & trucks all my life which led me to spending most of my time either racing, customizing and/or painting them. I took my passion for speed and tinkering into computers back in the late 80’s and haven’t looked back since. I’m not an expert at anything, but know enough of most things in life to be dangerous. To myself or wallet mostly. My days of tinkering under the hood of a PC are mostly gone now. There was a time when it was truly beneficial.

Today, we can buy products that are so fast out of the box, that OC’ing is truly just a hobby in my opinion. But of course that is only MY opinion. I’m all about it working right the first and providing a smooth experience. So my advice is never under buy, hoping to squeeze what you need out of something. It’s better to invest in more then necessary, when possible.

I have a YouTube channel and yes I do overviews and un boxing’s. I also do reviews. Long term reviews. If I am going to review something and recommend it, it better pass my abuse first. I hate when you have to revisit an item because it fails or have problems after some use. If I recommend something, just know it’s cause I’ve abused it to the best of my ability!

Best place to find me is on the Twitterverse. I can be found bantering away there daily.
