About Stephen Draper

Stephen has a degree in English from Brock University. He grew up playing video games and card games, always having an affection for strategy. He picked up League of Legends in early Season One and has since achieved Diamond rank multiple times. He also picked up Hearthstone in Beta and has since achieved Legend consistently. Recently he picked up Path of Exile and now it consumes his every waking minute. When he isn’t reading, writing, or gaming, he’s probably watching other people game.
