Greetings Folks! Welcome to the Twitch channel of An Iolair Ghorm! Thank you for stopping by!
I am a 50-something-year-old male living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Born, raised, and educated in Vermont. I hold an academic degree in mathematics with a deep interest in the physical sciences as well as foreign languages and cultures.
I am a former long-time veteran of the software development industry in Silicon Valley where I worked for almost three decades. I am now undergoing a career change to be a mathematics and science teacher, following in the footsteps of my father and brother (both physics professors).
For the math nerds out there, a few of my favorite topics include geometry, trigonometry, the complex number system, the Riemann zeta function and analytic continuation, abstract algebra, and set theory. In science, I enjoy pretty much anything involving astrophysics. For foreign languages, I have formally studied Russian and German, and I informally study Scots Gaelic.
My aim is to host a stream that is friendly and positive. Decorum is necessary since youth frequent this stream.
I have been an active player of World of Warships since August 2016, a content creator for the game since March 2018, and a WoWS NA community contributor since September 2020.
Includes drop chances for the Community Contributor containers; search for "contributor".
Wargaming permits use of a variety of mods in World of Warships to improve usability in port and during battle. These mods are implemented through Wargaming's Player Modifications program.
Another mod I sometimes use is the “Mermaid’s Path” voice pack, Version 3.0. The voice pack is currently unavailable through WoWS ModStation and so must be installed separately.
I am a member of the Naval Alliance, a group of mostly up-and-coming World of Warships content creators. You'll find our members here on Twitch, on YouTube, Twitter, Discord, and other platforms.
I post World of Warships videos to YouTube featuring
