Biography

Personal photograph of TheSnowedOne

Born in Australia but spending her formative years living on a RAAF base in Malaysia, Snow has had the privilege of being influenced by a number of eastern cultures. Currently residing in Brisbane Australia in a house shared with a number of "Partners in Mischief" but thanks to the virtues of the internet she tends to be a global virtual entity with projects and associations spanning the four corners of the world. But at heart she is an Australian; warped sense of humour and all.


Computers and games featured early in her life starting with an Atari 2600 and multiple rounds of Pitfall before moving onto her first programming experience on a Commodore 64 with hours spent typing in programs and games gotten initially from magazines and eventually ideas of her own creation.


Snow entered the Computer Industry as a young budding IT student and junior UNIX administrator and has remained in the same field now for well over 20 years; encompassing a broad knowledge of UNIX systems and software automation. Her gaming has followed along with her; with programming including original text muds and mucks (some of which still run to this very day) and running on-line chat (IRC) systems for game and social discussion.


Gaming her heart has always been with MMOs with her first love Ultima Online back in the mid 90's. Snow has been a sponsored raider with World of Warcraft for a number of years (up until 2010) and now plays more casually with The Older Gamers (www.theoldergamers.com) as a Division Captain for Wildstar. In her spare time she also plays ArcheAge, World of Tanks and is eagerly waiting the upcoming Space Sci-Fi MMO/Spaceship Simulation Star Citizen.


When not lording over her computer and Anime purchases you can find Snow playing acoustic guitars or delving into the realm of written fiction; with a particular love of Terry Pratchett and the books of Discworld.
