Aside from boardgames (I'm just a dilettante really) my main occupation is raising my two amazing kids, Leigh (girl, 11) and Marcus (boy, 9). Of course the most important thing is to raise them in "the way of the geek"...

Living in Hamilton, a large town in New Zealand's dairy farming heartland, there's a noticeable shortage of geekiness. So forcing them to play geeky boardgames is just the ticket.

In 2009 I started up a local games club. It's evolved into a small friendly monthly meeting, mostly playing light to medium Euros. Some favourites are:
7 Wonders
San Juan
Navegador
Fleet
Viticulture

When I am not gaming (or parenting) I work as a groundwater contaminant modelling scientist (i.e. computer geek) at the agricultural research centre. That's the gunk that farming puts into the groundwater. I have a PhD in mathematics.

For Christmas 2012 we got ourselves a second hand used Wii console, and a bunch of games. So the new hotness around our house is Wii games, especially the phenomenal Legend of Zelda titles:
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
