My name is Ryan Hammett, known to many as Larke, and I am a graduate of York College of Pennsylvania with a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science and a minor in Creative Writing. If we’re keeping count, I was only one class away from a Math minor… I like writing more anyway. I currently work at ParadoxLabs as a Back End Developer where I offer technical support and dig deep into Magento’s mammoth library of PHP code. While not at work I spend my free time curating my music collection, playing (console) video games, watching anime, or lending a helping hand or ear to those in need. I moderate for several communities on Twitch and Discord, and also volunteer for the folks behind Link’s Hideaway. I’m looking to write more, and eventually get back into music creation as a nice hobby. Currently living on my own, with my cats Nima and Ritz!
