I'm a 36 year old Business Continuity Officer (which means I help plan what to do when everything goes horribly wrong), living in Cheshire with my wife, daughter and son.

I came to gaming at a very young age, with the Fighting fantasy gamebooks, moving quickly on to Role-playing games and Boardgames. For the last 14 years or so I've also been involved in Live Action roleplay - I'm a staff member and NPC at Curious Pastimes.

Back at school I was the groups de facto GM, and played an awful lot of Warhammer 40K as well. GW boardgames were also ampngst my favourites - Dark Future holding a special place in my heart.

College saw me realise that Role-playing was better when it was about drama and plot, rather than monsters and treasure!

University was the heyday of all this for me; I ran the Uni Games Club, worked in a games shop and ran or played something 2 nights a week, including some epic and memorable campaigns of Cthulhu, Ars Magica and my own alternate history homebrew, which had the players as cyber enhanced Resistance fighters in occupied Poland circa 2060.

Once real life (jobs and bills) hit then boardgames once again came to the fore - although a 3 year WFRP campaign was excellent fun...

My main 'Geek' fix has been Live action Role-play. I first attended CP in 2000... and I've now been a (faction) Referee for 19 years and Faction command for 8.

At the moment I'm settling down after a few years of upheaval in my personal life and I'm getting more opportunities to game - we've just started a cool victorian steampunk FATE game.
