About Me (and us)

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


My gamer handle is DuchessCPK, but I am also referred to WifeCPK. I married BreakyCPK in 2015 after 3 years of dating. I blog about how life is being married to someone who makes the world of video games a full-fledged career.

Ups, downs, (and lefts and rights), all of it is entertaining! Tons to write, laugh, discuss, stream and blog about.


My husband is BreakyCPK of Heroes of Newerth and Dota 2 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.


BabyCPK was born on February 28th 2018 at 11:22 am at a healthy 7 lbs 6 oz. Already famous in my home town due to very proud grandparents, she is becoming a regular face on her father's stream. We are so very blessed to have this screaming little bundle in our lives. 


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.
