Just wanted to say hello to everyone, and give everyone some background on who I am and where I come from.
When I was in High school I worked for a private academy as a Network Administrator. I handled their four servers and helped set up the very first wireless network the campus had. While this may not sound like a big deal today, it was huge deal at the time when most of the professors had to use a dial-up modem to hook into the network from their office!
I used to frequent a pretty unique type of virtual chat room called “Habbo Hotel” back in its prime days (Circa 2000-2006) where we would hang out together and hosted a room called “Bizkit Talkshow” that became a widely followed group among the site. We would put on weekly shows featuring interviews, skits, news pieces, etc. This lead to a group of us creating a forum for Young Adults (Ages 16-25) that became known as “Community Flow” in 2005 which featured an international user base initiated originally from Bizkit, and then branching out as its own entity that offered helpful support and online experiences, as well as entertainment.
After Community Flow slowed down (and most of us got beyond “Young Adult” status) I became active with a group called “TrailVoy” which is a mashup of the name “Trailblazer” and “Envoy” for the General Motors vehicles that the forum revolves around. This SUV enthusiast group has regional sections, and a friend and I hosted a local get together for our (Northeast) region after joining the group. It was the first time I had ever attended a local event or convention type get together but our first time hosting was a huge success! Many of the attendees had never attended any previous events either and ended up making the meetups a regular occurrence throughout our Region!
So now my current interests revolve around gaming. In 2011 I started getting into Xbox 360 gaming (Mostly GTA V which then carried over to PS4 gaming, which then got me started with Twitch thanks to its built in streaming) Then began my journey back to PC gaming. I started getting back (always played PC games as a kid) into PC gaming heavily at the beginning of 2015. I used my tax refund and bonus check to build my current gaming PC setup, which of course is always a continual work in progress. I also watch a lot of streams on Twitch and even Admin for the typeForced ARK and SOTF Sub Servers! So, that’s my story… a brief history of Ascendo! heh.
