In no specific order, I am a graphic designer, a writer and editor, marketing analyst, vocalist, believer, mini painter, husband and father. I prefer these to lawyer, doctor, beggar man, and thief.
I love InDesign, Photoshop, and board games. I dislike cryptic game iconography. Though I get the reasons to "globalize" game graphics I believe icons and words go better together.
Secretly, I wish I were an illustrator, that I could play guitar, that I could blow stuff up frequently (think Jack O'Neill in Stargate SG-1), and grow long hair (think early rock and roll).
Although I dig miniatures, my home is not large. Therein lies this cautionary tale: should you too find yourself getting into minis games, make sure you have space to store them. If you really like the game, multiply the base game's space requirement by 10 to get an idea of "the future." This can help you determine just which game(s) you should buy and which ones you should just play with friends annually at BGGCON.
