I was born and raised in Gilbert, AZ. I have lived in Guam, the Philippines and the Federated Sates of Micronesia (in Chuuk).
I have a BS in Finance and an MBA. I currently work for a large bank. (At least for now.
I began playing Chess in third grade. I tried to get my father to play with me, but thinking games are not his thing. I ended up teaching myself. That began my lifelong love affair with games. I played a lot of Chess
, and Stratego
with my friends as I grew up.
In 1978 I discovered D&D and Wargames. I have played Dungeons & Dragons Basic Game
off and on for the last 30 years. I am currently in an off phase, but I just tried 5E and enjoyed the streamlined play so I may try to get back in. I never played 3.5E or 4E.
I also enjoyed PanzerBlitz
, Panzer Leader
and Squad Leader
with a buddy of mine.
I have also played CyberPunk, the WEG version of Star Wars and the FASA version of BattleTech
. I have not tried the newer versions of these, but would like to.
My family loved to play Rook
and other card games like UNO
I had to work during my college years so I did not get to game as much as many collegians do. Playing sports (Football) also took up a lot of time until I got hurt and "retired".
I got into miniatures with Mechwarrior: Dark Age
. Started to play Mage Knight
just before the conversion to v2.0. That stopped me from getting into it too far. I do enjoy playing Mage Knight Dungeons
though with the few pieces I have. Also collected Star Wars Miniatures
, Axis & Allies Miniatures
(stopped when the scale changed), Pirates of the Spanish Main
(Stopped after the fifth set) and Axis & Allies Naval Miniatures: War at Sea
Now I have a wife and two daughters. (Currently 16 and 13) We play kids games with them and have a great time. I have a semi-regular gaming group that kicked off this year so I get a little bit of gaming in. I am trying to get a few of our friends into it so I get more opportunities to play.Most Recently Played:My Wishlist:
