Background Information

Golin lives in the state of California, US. He is a self-taught programmer. He started learning when he was in middle school. His hobbies include boxing, playing games, writing reviews and stories, and spending time with friends and family.

Golin co-founded TARCLAN with a friend by the name of Trusin in 1999, the website was originally limited to a Total Annihilation clan. In 2000, TARCLAN had evolved into T.A.R.² which expanded into a website devoted to reporting information about news, movies, games, and technology. After the staff members vandalized the website, Golin fired them and shut down the website. In 2003, he launched two more sites for two guilds; Platinum SouljaZ (which eventually became Platinum SouljaZ 2.0) and Los Wades. In high school from 2004-2005, he built the Asian Club website for his high school. Finally, in 2006 he started a Los Wades website for the purpose of symbolizing the strength of his friends. By 2007, the site evolved into Los Wades 2.0 beta where he is currently expanding his goal to write stories for the entertainment of those who are willing to read it and review various hardware and software products. Currently, he and some members of Los Wades are working together as a staff to share their truest opinions of hardware products like the M3 DS Simply and the Nintendo DS Lite and softwares like Advance Wars: Dual Strike and Final Fantasy III.
