Twistid.com Baaaa baby, all baaaa

Twistid.com is run by myself, Adam Varn (age 20). A resident of Tallahassee, FL for 12 years, I first became enthralled with writing at an early age. After reading through most of my early teen to teenage years, I joined the high school newspaper staff Trojan Talk for my four years at Lincoln High School to try my hand at writing. In the time there, I wrote over 40 articles and co-authored a dozen pieces ranging from opinion pieces to humor to pure news reporting. Trojan Talk is a highly respected high school newspaper in Florida, winner of the prestigious All-Florida award 5 years in a row and a total of 12 times, the most prestigious award giving by the Florida Scholastic Press Association.

In early 1996, I became interested in the Internet after spending a very brief amount of time on my father's then AOL account. I never actually enjoyed any of AOL's features but was excited by the idea not only of unedited speech being published online but by the idea that anyone could publish. Taking my first job as a game reviewer for a local ISP, my combined interest in writing & Internet design led to my starting a website for Talstar Communications entitled Adam's Game Reviews.

The game site lasted for two years, but in those two years I would like to think I progressed exponentially as a writer and a designer, moving on for my first job to be a paid designer for Yourvillage.com (formerly Talstar). I spent a year and a half there honing my skills until I was lured away for better working conditions and money at Holographic Communications where I am currently employed.

Graduating in the class of 2000, I have not abandoned web design or writing, as evidenced by twistid.com. The domain was purchased in 1999 and has become an experiment in merging the printed word and the exciting world of Internet publishing for me. My writing, besides this site, can be found on Kungfoo.com, where I am an active reviewer and writer of many articles.

What I will do as a full career, I'm not sure. Currently I am at Tallahassee Community College and on track to get my AA degree. Then I plan to transfer to Florida State University and major in English. I'm pretty sure I will be designing for years to come, but if will keep doing it as I job, I don't know. Stay tuned...
