I first came across IF on www.jayisgames.com, first trying out Floatpoint by Emily Short (though I must admit I gave it up fairly quickly), then several months later I played Llama Adventure by John Cooney (I did play all the way through Floatpoint soon after this! :)). I tend to enjoy story based games more than puzzle games, but I still enjoy a good puzzle provided there is enough at stake in the game to give me good reason to want to solve the it (i.e. Hunter in Darkness, Violet, and of course, Llama Adventure).
I love the literary possibilities IF offers, and I'm learning Inform 7 so I can eventually write my own games.
Other than IF, I enjoy juggling, music (both playing and listening), martial arts, writing, reading, chess and foreign languages.

The Angel Curse, by David Welbourn   August 2, 2009
"The premise of The Angel Curse is an intriguing one, and the first half of the game is well done, if a little buggy. The writing flows..." - See the full review

Tookie's Song, by Jessica Knoch   July 31, 2009
"Tookie's Song is a lighthearted and enjoyable piece of work. It is mainly a puzzle piece; there isn't much at all in the way of story..." - See the full review
