I am a freelance games journalist, writing for a variety of outlets on both board and video games.

I was once Geek of the Week:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/153610

I was once interviewed on the Ultimate Podcast:
http://www.league-radio.com/Podcast15.mp3

I founded, and continue to write weekly for, the gaming website FortressAT.

Once a month I get to review a wargame on Shut Up & Sit Down.

I've reviewed a number of iOS board games for Gamezebo and Pocket Gamer.

My game ratings are rather harsher than most. Games are supposed to be fun, therefore a fun game is average, and worth 5 or 6. Only especially good games are worth 7+.
