Hey! I'm Alex Larrabee, also called "Baer" on the internet because I can't spell. I'm a writer here at GameTaffy, and I also host the Let's Play with GameTaffy series on our YouTube channel. If you'd like to, you can contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Twitter (@BaerTaffy), and tell me all sorts of stuff about what you did at school today. Then, later on, we can make a gingerbread house and play dinosaurs - but only when you finish your chores.
