Description Edit | History

I have always loved games, playing them and even designing some to play with friends as a teenager back when very few games came out each year. I spent 32 years of my professional career with AT&T in the Advertising & Publishing line of business, but in the evenings managed to design a few published games (Arkham Horror, Elder Sign and Defenders of the Realm to name a few). I was also fortunate enough to design the uniform the Chicago White Sox wore from 1982 - 1986 and still wear today as a special Sunday home game uniform.

Over the last 10 years I have designed games for a number of companies as an independent designer with a focus on thematic cooperative games for the most part. My simple motto of game design is that playing the game should be fun. All of you will be the judges of whether I succeeded at this goal, but at least for me it has been great fun designing games and even more fun playing them with the fans of my designs at conventions.
