Looks like I will be going to PAX this year, I'm pretty stoked.
I guess this is also a bit of a delurking. I live in the Issaquah area, have lived in Seattle for about 20 years. Big time gamer, and I've worked in the industry for close to 10 years now.
Everyone here seems like a great bunch of people, and I am glad I could be a part of the community.
