I am a mid-thirties geek and father of three.
I have had many things I have geeked out over about through the years, Wet shaving, fountain pens..but the one that have stuck are cycling, reading and music.
The cycling is an obsession and a mode of transportation (8 - 9 months a year) I cycle 30 KMs a day to work and try to get a ride through the hills on the weekends. I average about 3200 KMs a year, a dozen tubes and 2 tires.
Reading has been with me almost all my life. I will read just about anything and I go back and forth between fiction and non-fiction spurts. Most of my reading falls into Fantasy and Sci-Fi lately.
Music has been a staple since childhood. I have gone through phases. I have been a metal head, grunge kid, punk, hippie... My current obsessions are Jam Bands and indie/hipster music. If I was 15 years younger I would totally be a hipster.
obviously my latest geeksession is board games. I had played board games as a kid but I didn't take it seriously until late 2011. It has been a great journey. I have found great games and great people.
A big part of who I am here at BGG is the FTL forum (the artist formerly known as the FTL Thread). That is a great bunch of geeks and thumbers. Always around for a chat about life, the universe and everything as well as Doctor Who, Tolkien and the occasional board game. I am honoured to be a Noble Knight of the FTL.
My Top Ten are the games I love to play and my Hot 10 are the ones I really want to try.
