About Me

Liz Conrad is that girl at a house party who raids the food, talks to the household pets (including the fish) and finds the comfiest place to sit before making introductions… but after that, she’s quite normal.

When I was in the first grade, my teacher handed me a sheet of paper and asked me to write what my family and I did over the weekend. When I handed back a tall-tale featuring harrowing flights to the North Pole, werewolves and an abundance of Kraft Dinner, I’d not only garnered Mrs. Patterson’s patented “this kid is going to be a pain in my ass” stare, but also cemented my ambition to be a writer.

I’m a twenty-some-odd Toronto native who lives with her fiance and cat in a tiny subterranean apartment we’ve lovingly dubbed the “Hobbit Hole.” Since graduating from the University of Guelph with a bachelors in English literature, I’ve returned to school to pursue a second degree in Political Science and have been writing for such online publications as That Videogame Blog and RETRONUKE. While I mainly report on video game news and reviews, my true passion lies in interpretative journalism, focusing on creativity and technology with regards to film, video games and the art of storytelling.

Corporate wage slave by day, freelance writer by night, I am open to any opportunity that might come my way. I’m always looking to meet new people and forge connections, and the stranger/fringe-ier the project, the better!
