Whoa, I get a profile? Cool. Not really a designer; just a gamer and, like pretty much every other gamer, I design a few now and then just for fun. I started doing that as a kid, sent a few to Metagaming, and became a playtester for them just before they went out of business. Got to playtest one design, a sort-of sequel to "Artifact" involving vampires and werewolves on the moon.
Kind of lost track of gaming during college and fell back into it around grad school - when I was desperate for cheap entertainment that didn't involve having to go out in Chicago weather.
Oh, speaking of which - the facts of life:
Born: Rochester, New York
Grew up: Bangor, ME
College: Columbia University, University College London
Grad School: University of Chicago
Lived for a few years after grad school in Portland, ME, many years in NYC, and recently moved to Edinburgh, Scotland. Favorite games, books, movies and other chrome can be found on my profile, if anyone actually cares.
