Roles: Admin / Developer / Games Coordinator
Hello, my name is Robert, but you can call me Robbie. I am the owner and admin of this community/project. I have five college degrees in social sciences which I am considered as a major geek. My associate degrees are in sociology, psychology, and social and behavioral science. My bachelor's degree is in sociology and my master's degree is in sociology with an emphasis on education. My career dream is to be an educator. Although I spend a lot of my time analyzing the social world, I love computers and web development as a hobby. Yes, I created the comps and plan to develop more. When I have time, I do hope to coordinate some games and events because a healthy community include the involvement of the owner. :)
