I grew up in a military family, and my two brothers and I wore out a great number of games as we traveled from place to place. My early favorites were 3M football and NFL Strategy, but when I was in the 7th or 8th grade I discovered the classic Avalon Hill games (D-Day, Battle of the Bulge, and Africa Korps) and Strat-o-Matic baseball. I remember going to a BX with my folks about that time and buying my first AH game: 1914. I always spent more time setting it up than playing it, and that was true even after I decided the game would be better playing with just half the pieces.

In high school, I was introduced to Diplomacy and SPI. I acquired only a few games between college and real life and law school (we played Risk in college), but I stopped at a yard sale during my second year in law school and found a copy of Africa Korps for 30 cents, bought it, and I was hooked again. For the past 30 years, I have added way too many games to my collection (I don't have nearly enough time to play them all), but enjoy them nonetheless. My collecting has taken me to every thrift store in every part of our city and other towns and cities for three decades.

I have practiced law in Nashville, Tennessee for 29 years, and work with a 200+ attorney law firm. I have a beautiful wife and three great boys, the youngest a senior in college. I don't get out much, but I have enjoyed the Tennessee Games Day organized by a BGGer each year of its existence.
