I am originally from Ohio and have been living in the Tampa area for a several years.
I have attended Origins 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 - GenCon 2013 - BGG Con 2013
I enjoy introducing new people to the hobby.
My life partner is a sporadic gamer.
I have a 7 year old who enjoys games when his attention span permits.
I am a member of the following groups. I recommend them if you are looking to play.
The Society for the Exploration of Play is a group that caters to introducing new players to the world of boardgames. If you are new to the hobby, you should come out and attend an event. We promise you will have fun. http://www.meetup.com/TampaSWEEP/
The Grand Gamers meet in St. Pete bi-weekly. http://www.meetup.com/grandgamers/
The Clearwater Boardgamers is a collection of gamers who schedule several events a week. Great people and a good time. CBG
