About

Erik Ruof is a writer straight outta Torrance, California, and a graduate from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (what a nerd). A lifelong enthusiast of RPGs and competitive multiplayer games. Got invested into esports after realizing how much he enjoys watching people that are way better than him at Overwatch and Call of Duty. Consistent blogger and incessant talker of all things video games, technology, science fiction, music, movies, and sports that don’t have the ‘e’ in it.
