I’m Leah, The New Writer/Producer At Lifehacker Australia!

Ever caught a meteor with your bare hands? It takes time to get used to the heat and the pain, but it’s a good cure for loneliness.

Hi, I’m Leah, the newest writer/producer working across Gizmodo, Kotaku, Lifehacker Australia. My mum thinks I’m a pretty big deal, so you probably should too. I’m here to talk about me – but I’m pretty bad at that, so I’m going to introduce you to the things that I love instead.

You’ll notice there’s a pretty grim quote at the start of this article. It’s not Shakespeare, it’s a quote from what is (unironically) my favourite game – The Sims 2 on Nintendo DS. I love it so much, I’ve written multiple features about it across the World Wide Web.

See, you’d think for a DS adaptation of a prestigious PC franchise, the game would be a licensed shit show of clichés and cheap gameplay – but you would be very, very wrong. The Sims 2 on Nintendo DS has a fantastic story, a great cast of characters, and I love it. I love it a lot.

It has a a mummy. And a cow-worshipping goth cult. And a space alien emperor who’s constantly trying to overtake your hotel. Also, a superhero called the Raticator? And uh… robots. You’ll love it, trust me.

When I’m not replaying The Sims 2 on Nintendo DS, I’m writing – a lot. You’ll find some of my work on IGN, The AU Review, Supanova Expo and Green Man Gaming. You might also find it on my Twitter page, where I ponder Life’s Big Questions.

On a related note, I’m really into professional wrestling. Like, really into it. When I’m not spending time at PWA’s weekend shows (shout out to the lads), I’m designing and sewing wrestling gear. Because life is wild sometimes, I’ve had my gear featured in New Japan Pro Wrestling – twice. I still don’t know what I’m doing, but I guess something is going right.

I’m super excited to be joining the team working across Gizmodo, Kotaku and Lifehacker Australia, and I hope you’re all looking forward to me sneaking in wrestling references whenever and wherever possible. Follow me on Twitter and feed my steadily growing ego.
