Citizens on Patrol

Citizens on Patrol was a cover band that changed its name almost every time its lineup changed. Before we were COP—a Police Academy 4 reference—we were called “Sandpiper Air” (with lead singer and guitarist Dave Wiemer).

The band still exists today as Annie and the Orphans.

I started writing about videogames professionally in 2005. I'm better known for my personal essays. I like vintage computer games and preservation, books, and horror games.
