Lacking inborn social graces, Jane developed an academic interest in communication, culture, language, and art from a very young age. With the potential to unify all other forms of art, video games inevitably became her greatest passion. From the Atari Video Computer System and SEGA Genesis to modern consoles, mobile devices, and PCs from all eras, she has played — and studied — games of every genre. A writer, artist, would-be musician, and fledgling programmer, Jane is still plotting to make her mark on the video game industry and the world. She is extremely shy, but ultimately has a lot to say on most subjects.
