Scouser born and bred, now living near Sheffield, UK, I've played board games all my life I discovered modern board games by accident. We'd invited some neighbours and their kids round for a game of Monopoly and while looking for an up-to-date set of rules found the BGG. I didn't jump in straight away but while on holiday I went to a game shop, usually only frequented so my son could buy Pokemon cards except this time, because of BGG, all the boxes of games on the shelves meant something to me.

We bought Carcasonne: Hunters and Gatherers after the shop assistant demoed it. Once I realised how it helped bring our family together in one place away from computers, TV's and game consoles I was hooked. I've met new friends locally and even introduced the neighbours although its not really their thing.

As a child I had a passion for all things WW2 and Lord of the Rings and a vague awareness of wargames. B1 Bomber and Eastern Front on the Atari made lasting impressions and I had, and still have, a 1977 copy of War of the Ring. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/2228/war-of-the-ring bought at a now closed game shop on Dale Street. Discovering BGG brought it all flooding back so I now have a growing selection of Euro's, AT's and mostly wargames. I prefer tactical as I find it easier to visualise and empathise with what's going on and I'm more comfortable with light to medium complexity. That doesn't mean to say I'm not curious about strategic and operational monsters.

Job wise .. I'll spare you the potted history .. suffice it to say .. corporate graphic design, medical and educational multimedia design, computer game artist (characters, FMV and some environmental), visual effects generalist for TV, games and film and lots of freelancing.

I was the Co-Founder, Art Director and Artist of The Shenandoah Studio .. creating award winning wargames for iOS .. until we stopped.
