I have been playing games since before I could read. Though my family didn't have an "official" game night, we never really watched much TV and that allowed time to play some games.

I played D&D and AD&D through Junior High, High School, Undergraduate and Grad School, but I didn’t play for several years. It looks like I am able to rekindle that RPG fire with some Labyrinth Lords (Basic D & D) as both of my sons are playing and have brought some of their friends on board.

My exposure to the "new" board games came in the form of El Grande and Settlers of Catan in the late '90's. Tabletop Game and Hobby in the Kansas City area was my weekly hangout for many years.

My interests in gaming extend to the pre-painted CMG realm also. I hopped into Mechwarrior: Dark Age in '02 (and enjoyed going to Nationals at Origins in ’04, ’05, and ’06), some HeroClixs in '03, and Axis & Allies: Minis (both dry and wet versions). I have found a guy to play Axis & Allies: Minis with recently.
I have also started to acquire some newer games like Firefly: The Game and Psycho Raiders, due to the recommendations found on this site.
I am a college professor and I taught courses associated with the life sciences at Metropolitan Community College, Penn Valley campus in Kansas City, MO for almost 15 years. I am now teaching for the Moberly Area Community College at their Hannibal, MO campus. My formal training was as a plant/insect ecologist and I worked in the salt marshes around Tampa Bay in the early to mid '90's. I was married for 22 years.
