I found all these gaming-theory wackos back in late '99. My gaming buddy at the time and all-around awesome designer, Peter Seckler, showed me the Gaming Outpost and I got all hooked on Sorcerer. When the Sorcerer site and the Forge went down because their administrator let their domain names expire, I stepped in and have been flogging this horse since. I've been running my own design studio, Anvilwerks, for a few years.

Pre-internet, my favorite games were Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, Star Wars d6, and Twilight: 2000. These days, my favorites are Dogs in the Vineyard, HeroQuest, and, well, a bunch of others.

For my day job, I'm the vice-president of IT for a small company. I really don't enjoy it. Outside of work, I play the ukulele (baritone uke, actually) and make folk and punk rock. It's a surprisingly rich sound. I have a cat, Violet, and a rocking fiancee. I'm getting married in December and we're going to make a kid right after that.
