Atlas Burke

PROFILE:

Named after a Greek titan, a book of maps, or his Great-Grandfather, Atlas grew up near Detroit. After studying Cell Biology at the University of Michigan and spending a year looking into microscopes, Atlas decided to volunteer--playing video games. hobbies run from gaming to music (voice, bass, guitar) to rugby. Atlas is a strong supporter of indie and low-cost gaming, an area he thinks is underserved by the media.
