Hello, and welcome, Harry Potter fans! My name is Irvin, though I'm known around the Internet as "hpboy13." I'm a very prolific member of the Harry Potter fandom ever since I joined it in 2003, and this is a place to keep track of all my creative endeavors. I've since been branching out into other fandoms, but HP will always be the focal point.

I hail from New York City, where I am a member of The Group That Shall Not Be Named, the largest real-life HP group in the world. Through the Group, I have become an avid cosplayer, a Quidditch player (Beater, NY Badassilisks 2010-2014), a wizard rock concert organizer (Avada KedavRock! 2012, 2014, 2019), and the leader of the world's first wizard dance troupe, the Dancing Death Eaters. I have become a regular attendee at HP conventions, which serve as a confluence of all my creative endeavors.

I have dreamed of being a writer ever since I wrote my first fanfiction in 2005; my dream finally came true as my first book was released July 31st, 2018: Dumbledore: The Life and Lies (originally titled The Life and Lies of Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore). But during the last thirteen years, I have written an awful lot online; most significantly, as a columnist for MuggleNet, spearheading "The Three Broomsticks." From 2013 to 2021, I was also a regular writer at Hypable. In 2019, I became a regular host on the Potter podcast Alohomora!

In short, I have a lot of Harry Potter and all-around geeky stuff going on in my life, and I needed one place on the Internet where all of it could be centralized, and this site is that place. You can check out my bio, or click on the links page to explore all my stuff. Here are a few quick links.

8/30/21: All websites converted to new Google Sites


Much to my chagrin, Google forced all Classic Google Sites to update to their new interface, so now the Bibliography website as well as this one have been converted. The widgets are nowhere near as elegant or easy to use in the new interface - particularly the "latest updates" kind of stuff - but I've made the most of it and tried to keep this site as clear and user-friendly as possible. Hopefully with the world opening back up, I'll actually have more exciting stuff to update soon!
