I'm a long-time role-playing and board game geek, having co-designed my first RPG at age 12 (okay, so it was pretty basic, but still..), one of my favorite hobbies is designing and writing about games. I started losing my vision at age 16 and now, more than a decade later, I have made it my life's goal to bring the joy of gaming to everyone, including people with disabilities who are often left in the dark (pardon the pun).
I operate the Accessible Games web site (http://www.accessiblegames.biz
) which is a blog-style site devoted to the subject of gaming, with an emphasis on aids for people with disabilities. Lately it has also taken on a role as a resource for other game designers to help them get started in the industry.
When not gaming or writing about games, I spend most of my time catching up on the latest Tech news, listening to heavy metal, watching movies (blind people do that too, you know) and reading books with my new text-to-speech-enabled Kindle. I also write reviews for all of the above-mentioned things; I can't help but try to introduce the things I love to the general public.
My latest release is Psi-punk
, a cyberpunk-meets-psionics role-playing game based on the Fudge
system. It was officially released in May 2013 and features art by RPGGeek's own Melissa Gay
