Avid board game player and game designer / developer. (iPhone developer by day.) I have several board and card games I've created, but only a few have made it to BGG.

I'm interested in converting board games to digital, and have been lucky enough to work on several projects like that. Read more about my video games here: http://abstractpuzzle.com/ and here: http://chesstris.com/ with a bibliography of sorts here: http://chesstris.com/about/#bibliography

I'm especially interested in games with 3 to 5 players that get as close as possible to abstract strategy. Chess and Go are my highest rated games, but I play them less frequently than I used to. Euro games with elegant mechanics are always appreciated, and probably the primary reason for my board game obsession.

I love playing boardgames asynchronously on my iPhone and iPad. I have the same username (grid) in Apple's Game Center as here on BGG, feel free to invite me to a game.
