I think I'm much better at designing games than at playing them, but enjoy both immensely. I generally design the sorts of games I like to play: mostly historical and/or economic theme, medium-to-heavy weight. But I also like abstracts and more casual games, and so I design those, too.

I make a lot of geeklists, or rather, I start a lot of geeklists. Grouping two or three games that I like by what I like about them and letting others fill in the blanks seems a very efficient way to learn about games I wouldn't have heard of otherwise.

I also make films, in equal partnership with my wife, Mary. The most recent was 2008's SON OF A SEAHORSE.

I have a published novel, JOLT CITY; it is about a homeless superhero who rides a unicycle.

I used to make freeware PC games, the most popular of which was probably SIDE SADDLE 2.

I am an ordained minister.

I had a very brief and ill-considered career in politics.

That's pretty much everything about me that I'm both (a) willing to share and (b) seems appropriate for this format.
