Jarrod Kailef does too much stuff, including voice overs and narration, computer network engineering, running a radio station, writing music, playing percussion, retro computing software development, and teaching martial arts. On rare occasions he might even get a few hours of sleep! In between all this, he still manages to write for Old School Gamer.
