I started gaming in the late 70s when my friends and I discovered Dungeons & Dragons. Now, more than 30 years later, I’m still passionately in love with the game. Oh, I’m an enthusiastic board gamer. I’ve played a good many other pen-and-paper RPGs through the years. And I’ve gotten into my share of trouble in Azeroth. But it’s D&D that keeps me coming back again and again.
Although for most of my adult life I’ve worked as a paramedic, I’ve been fortunate enough to work for game companies twice. I worked for TSR, Inc. as a game designer and for Kenzer & Company as the organized play manager. I don’t have anything close to the publication resume as many of the venerable giants lurking in the creative places of the Web, but I’ve been to the rodeo a time or two.
To prove what a backwards person I am, I attended college at the age of 40. A few years ago I saw an article in the newspaper about nontraditional age students at the local community college. Two years later I graduated summa cum laude with an associate’s degree in computer science. I transferred to a 4-year college and two years after that graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in computer science with a math minor.
I am interested in doing some more creative work on a freelance basis. So if anyone is looking for a reliable writer or editor, let me know!
