Hey Guys. I’m Tass. Here’s a bit about me…
Boring Personal Stuff
- I’m 28.
- I grew up outside of Philadelphia, PA.
- I went to college in New York City, at New York University, and graduated with a degree in Finance.
- In 2007 I moved out to Los Angeles. I lived there for 3 years.
- I moved back to Philly in 2010.
- I love to bowl and have 2 career 300s.
- I’m also a die hard Philadelphia sports fan.
My Flash Game Street Cred
- I started out playing flash games in 2002, my freshman year of college.
- I absolutely destroyed people at Curveball, Helicopter, City Jumper, and Asshunter.
- After finding out my girlfriend (at the time) liked DDR, I remembered this little site called Flash Flash Revolution, and started playing it in the summer of 2003.
- I quickly grew addicted to FFR, and wanted to help the site grow. I was made a Moderator in 2004 and an Admin in 2006.
- I ran the front end of FFR full time from Aug 2007 until Sept 2009.
- Some time in 2005 and 2006, I helped run a flash game arcade site for FFR users, called ffrcade.com. The site died very shortly after I left.
- I discovered Kongregate in late 2007, and quickly became addicted there too.
- In 2008, Kongreguide was created, and I decided to start writing guides to help others with badges.
- Since it’s obvious I don’t like writing with tons of detail, I started making videos to show people how to get badges, instead of using text.
- Apparently people like my videos, because they’ve become pretty popular.
- I became a partner on YouTube in late April 2009.
- Armor Games, SPIL Games, Addicting Games, Candystand, Kongregate, BubbleBox, NotDoppler, FreeWorldGroup, Pencilkids, and many others all feature my videos inside of sponsored games on their sites.
- And now I’ve created this little blog site, and you have taken all this time to learn about me. <3 <3 <3.
