Andrew Verrall

Andrew was hired as a freelance writer for VG Kami after demonstrating a somewhat pathological level of knowledge and interest in Final Fantasy VIII. He is also passionate about games that aren't Final Fantasy VIII and enjoys playing old favorites like Dark Souls, Transistor, and Populous: The Beginning.

He is currently based near London but has moved around the UK at various junctures and has dabbled in many jobs over the years in order to make heads or tails of his 20s. This includes studying physics, charity work, and care work.

When he's not playing games or grappling with what direction his life is taking, he can often be found playing and making music with his keyboard and/or guitar. He enjoys recording and producing his own dreamy noisy songs for his tens of fans to enjoy.
