Born in -81. I got interested in roleplaying games and board games at the age of 12. Most of my childhood hobbies took a spark when I saw a glimpse of the Dungeon and Dragons Rulebook cover with the majestic red dragon on it, battling a sword wielding hero. At first I started drawing knights and dragons with a pencil as well as drawing maps and planning my own campaigns which eventually lead to a whole rules system that we developed quite far with a friend of mine. We also played some board games like heroquest but I actually started collecting board games only at a later stage of my life.

I really enjoy a good story and I have found a way to tell stories of my own through board games and roleplaying games. This is probably the main reason that got me designing board games to begin with.

Currently designing games is more or less a hobby and perhaps I want to keep it that way for now. I usually start developing new games with a certain theme in mind and a goal of creating something fun for me and my friends to play. Hopefully I will manage to create something that other people can enjoy as well.

I really like games with theme over abstraction. Of course the game has to play well also and preferably have a decent amount of player interaction and perhaps even some backstabbing.
