About Me (and us)

Would probably be good to give a little better introduction to me and my little geeky family.

Me:














My gamer handle is DuchessCPK, but I am also referred to WifeCPK. I was a gamer(ish) before I met my now-husband. After I met BreakyCPK, I was immersed in all things gaming and geek and truly realized what a huge difference there is from someone who spends all their time in a gaming culture vs someone like me who has a "normal person" job. I work a 8-5 in a higher education office at a university in Michigan. Talk about a culture shock when I go from that to a Hearthstone-playing backyard BBQ. Or when I'm at work and things like, "lag" "gg" "IRL" and "troll" slip out in conversation



Husband:















My husband is BreakyCPK of Heroes of Newerth fame. He is both an avid gamer as well as a "shoutcaster" and streamer in the esports industry.

To explain what the CPK stands for, I will let the quote from my husband's Twitch stream do all the talking:
"The CPK stands for Crazy Poway Kids, which is the name of my group of friends' gaming clan that we used back when I was younger and I just stuck with it." Poway is in California, by the way.

My husband. A man of many words.




Dog:

























Our pit-bull mix just joined our family in 2016. Her name is Lily or DogCPK (noticing a trend?) and is such a good girl.
