Welcome to my profile page. If you're interested in knowing more about me, I am married to a nongamer, and have two teenage daughters, who will play [some] games with me on occasion. We have a dog, and two cats.
I live in Kennewick, Washington (that's the dry eastern side of the state). I'm originally from Michigan, attended the University of Michigan (GO BLUE!) as a Navy Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC) midshipman. I spent eight years in the US Navy as a submarine officer, and am currently working as a security analyst for a large federal laboratory.
I have always been a big boardgame fan, but wasn't fully aware of the extent of my affliction until I discovered BGG several years ago. I am a member of the Columbia Basin Boardgame Society
. We meet several times a month, and you can read our session reports
on our Guild page
I am willing to play almost any type of game- I find the game group is usually more important for a postive game experience than the game itself. Lately, I've been dabbling in wargames, but haven't fully convinced the rest of my game group to try them.
I have a large collection of games because of a dominant packrat gene that prevents me from selling, trading, disposing or otherwise parting with just about anything, including games. Someday space might become an issue, and that may change, but I will wait to cross that bridge when I get there.
