I am an avid gamer, much to the consternation of my wife, Angie. I have been role-playing since I was 15, and have been running games just as long.
I love getting new people into gaming. It’s awesome to show them that it is fun and dispelling the myths that role-playing is boring, weird, and silly. Most newbies, to their surprise, find that they actually have a great time!
I love the OSR-DIY gaming movement and enjoy hacking the shit out of systems and frankengaming shit!
I lived in New Jersey for 8 years while Angie got her PhD in toxicology at Rutgers University. We moved to Rochester, NY 2 years ago and Angie is working at the University of Rochester. I am the Director of Operations at an Early Childhood Education and Development Center. It’s a living, but my passion is in writing, history, and gaming.
I also love reading and video games.
For those who care- my top bands/performers are Louis Armstrong, Nirvana, Cake, B-52’s, Bad Religion, Dead Weather, Elvis, Fats Waller, Tool, and Perfect Circle.
I love getting tattoos and currently have 14- most of them are geek-centric. I have 5 Star Wars tats, a Death Eater and Batman symbol, Hellboy and Hecate, and two Alice and Wonderland original illos- plus a few other things.
