Labeling being an important, and subsequently irrelevant thing, I was named Joe Houston in the hope that I would move to Texas to test the fidelity of address checking at the post office. Three years ago I accomplished that task, taking up residence in Austin to continue working as an engineer in the video-game industry.

A lifelong creative writer and a programmer since the age of 16, I am immensely grateful that there is much in life to criticize. In 2011 this site was formed because I wanted more of the world exposed to my petty grievances, and was unable to find a loud enough bullhorn.

I am best known as the founder of the independent game company Roxlou Games and for working as a core team member for the critically acclaimed game Dishonored.
