Opium is a Supervisor at GBAtemp.net.
Opium lives and studies in Australia. He spent his childhood growing up in a small country town before moving out to the big city in 2006. He is currently studying a Bachelor of Commmunication, majoring in Journalism and Communication & Media Studies. He now lives on the Gold Coast, Queensland.
- His hobbies include gaming, acoustic guitar, music, journalism and hanging out with friends. He was also part of the school rowing and kayaking teams during his time in High School so any water based sports also catch his eye.
- Despite popular belief Opium didn't choose his nickname based on a love for the drug opium but rather love for the word itself. This was inspired by memories of his childhood hero Tin Tin; a gun wielding, dog loving, drug busting reporter. The idea that every reporter carried a gun and rid the world of opium shipments didn't stick long as Opium is now a published journalist himself. In late 2006 several of his news stories were published in the daily paper The Daily Examiner.
- Opium visited GBAtemp even before the forums opened in 2002.
- His first videogame experience was Alex The Kidd, built into the Sega Master System II.
