Warlord beats Troll, Troll beats Elf, Elf beats Water Sprite, and basically everything else beats Enchanted Bunny.

I was in the Army for 10 years and a Deputy Sheriff in Northern California for 4 years before we ended up at Ramstein Air Base, Germany in 2008 because my wonderful wife is the greatest Airman that ever was and ever shall be. During my time that I was in Germany, I was a stay-at-home dad. I've been there, done that, and got the t-shirt so staying at home taking care of our three children was the best! But now I sell airsoft and tactical gear throughout the US for a company based in Hong Kong. So I live, breath, sleep, and eat in the toy industry.

I became an avid cardboard gamer in early 2011 when my German Geek Buddy introduced me to Battlestar Galactica (German Edition). I later took the plunge into BGG.com after I visited their booth at my first Essen trip in October 2011.

Being a stay-at-home parent in Germany allowed me to get creative with my current collection and create tuckboxes, reference cards, storage solutions, etc.

I love BGG.com and its vast resources. I was able to spend 1-2 hours per day on BGG.com checking out forums of my current collection and future buys. Thanks to many of you who supported my habit! But now that I have joined the work force again, my time is reduced to about 4 hours per week.

I'm also always trying to buy at least one family game in conjunction with every game I acquire for myself so I can share my passion of gaming with the family. This can be a challenge at times since my 20-year old step-daughter is Autistic. But it is a huge reward when I do find a game that she really likes. We also have a 10-year old son and 3-year old daughter. So, we're now a family of five! We also just adopted a puppy in 2016 and she is a basset hound & pit bull terrier mix.

I started my collection with a big plunge into deck building games followed by some popular "Ameritrash" board games. But since I have pursued "Euro" games and dice games.

We left Germany 6 years later and returned to the U.S. in the summer of 2014. Even though we no longer live in the land of board games, my wife and I try to play as often as I can even though I have returned to the work force. Fortunately, our bible study group is filled with geeks like me and the guys now meet every Monday night for gaming. I have been fortunate to always find a gaming group, but that is probably because if I can't find one then I make one.

My Avatar: I created my avatar about 3 months after I created an account on BGG.com. At the time I was subscribed to several auctions trying to expand my small collection. I was a noob when it came to bidding, fair pricing, etc. And I was always getting outbid by bidders in the United States because the auctions always closed while I was asleep at my home in Germany. So being a huge fan of the TV series, The Big Bang Theory, I decided to make my avatar the Enchanted Bunny from the Mystic Warlords of Ka'a because, "Warlord beats Troll, Troll beats Elf, Elf beats Water Sprite, and basically everything else beats Enchanted Bunny."
