I'm a jazz trumpet player, currently touring six months out of the year with a progressive roots reggae band ( www.groundation.com
). We tour throughout the US, Brazil and Western Europe. I married my true love of some 10 years in August of 2005, she's not a big gamer, but she has a number of qualities that make up for this deficiency. We live together in the Mission District of San Francisco. My touring schedule puts me out of touch with the gaming community much of the time, but I do have friends in the band that play chess and cards.
I started gaming at the tender age of 9 with the basic D & D boxed set. Squad Leader and role-playing games sucked up a lot of my time through college (where I got a degree in Chinese History). I'm recently getting back into it since I have a lot of free time when I'm off the road, though my musical career puts me in touch with very few people who enjoy this particular passtime.
