Just returned to serious gaming since Spring 2011.. but making up for lost time with a vengeance. ( Avid collector/buyer/trader of everything from TV Game Show versions to Euros to WTF sort of games to tons of card games to.. to.. to...
Co-Sponsored my first con here in Austin in August 2011.
When I am not playing games I am a classical musician for a living. (own a chamber music business, run four different series, travel a great deal to perform/conduct/speak, about to start my 22nd year as a member of The Austin Symphony as of Fall 2014, busy composer... all kinds of other stuff about that on my site linked here on my profile.)
Also a busy writer ( short stories, microfictions, reviews, poetry, 2 novels in progress --book of poetry being released 2015 hopefully and now a game designer. ( Eight card games in development as of Summer 2011-- 2 are in the prototype artwork phase as of Mid-July 2011--- UPDATE as of March 2013 the wheels turn VERY VERY slowly.. but two games are nearing 100% completion of art... UPDATE July 2014 .. very , very, very slowly --- UPDATE My first card game now in Testing as of Late Summer 2014 ! )
Big into movies, music, reading, wine, alcohol, TV, tobacco...

Been back now to Austin BGB twice and DGM another time in July 2015--- loved them--- excited about DGM and BGG in Nov 2015 again !
