1) grew up in the south, mostly in New Orleans.
2) moved up on the east coast after college to work for uncle sam. still on the east coast, working in big data these days
3) spent 8 years working in england. i often wish i was still there. one of the few times i've cried was when john peel died
4) married to a wife who will game with me on occasion. married 18 years, she still thrills me
5) two elementary-school and middle-school aged kids. the younger likes to game, lately fluxx, the older just plays pokemon
6) regularly game with 6 (or so) buddies in my basement. lots of beer makes for some exciting lapses of strategy.
