Born, Raised and still living in Baltimore, MD. The best gaming town there is.
I have a wife and two children, that I try to play games with as much as possible, however most of my game playing time is logged with Bobby Tweaks and his Wednesday night crew.

I am one of the original bloggers for the Fortress Ameritrash Site (www.fortressat.com
). Obviously I like Ameritrash titles, however I will play almost anything and really what I like is the meta game. 4x games tend to be my favorite, currently Twilight Imperium (Third Edition): Shattered Empire
is the gold standard. I also enjoy 2 player light wargames, Combat Commander and the Columbia block games are good examples. I tend to avoid passive aggressive games built around mastering a scoring mechanic and then executing the most efficient plan to exploit that mechanic. (Read most eurogames) I will play the better euro's like Power Grid
and Tigris & Euphrates
but tend to find the average eurogame boring.
I faithfully attend the WBC every year, mostly hanging out in the open gaming room, when not running the Twilight Imperium III tournament. If you are planning on attending drop me a geekmail and we can get together and play some games.
When I am not gaming I use my excessive training as a musician in my job as a computer network engineer. Most of the world finds this boring and so that is enough on that topic.
