About Melissa Kay; Content Creator



I’m an eclectic spirit of the Great White North with far too many interests and not enough time. My gaming hobby set me onto the path of blogging, podcasting and a diverse network of friends. I have a degree in Sociology, a field of study where the graduates are dubbed Defenders of Perversion, so I’d like to think that I have a lot of unconventional ideas about life and disagree with the status quo. I prefer a bit of science fiction and fantasy in my consumable media, however I also enjoy a few period pieces here and there. My dogs and my cat are like my children. I like cute things and neat gadgets. Nature is nice. You can always find me on Twitter @thequadskater. Always.
