About:

I work for Cardmarket as a Product Manager and you might have seen me on the coverage team of the Cardmarket series! I fell in love with Magic and Commander in the Theros block and have been playing fanatically since then. I've played at least 65 different commanders in the past 5 years - the deckbuilding is half the fun for me. When I'm not brewing or playing Commander decks, I enjoy Legacy and other high-powered formats.
