Ferdinand Andrew Capitulo is the main host and creator of The Cardboard Stacker and is credited as writer, video editor, & composer for the review and instructional series. As a gamer, his love for board & card game began a child playing with his siblings & friends. In 2009, the discovery of modern games took to him by surprise as he found an unopened copy of The Settlers of Catan at a local garage sale. Having the opportunity to make profit by selling it online, Capitulo decided to keep the game because it sounded as fun as Monopoly. This started an awareness and a new love for modern board games. Capitulo still plays Catan today.
Capitulo is also a composer, tubist, & pianist and received a MM in Music Composition for his undergraduate studies. He is an alum of Cal State Fullerton (Fullerton, CA). His formal work can be found here: https://soundcloud.com/ferdinand-andrew-capitulo
