I come from a gaming family. My brother introdued my to D&D and Car Wars when I was around 6-7 years old. My dad was a collector of Avalon Hill games. Family game night would range from Monopoly to Gunslinger to Civilization. Whenever we would visit my grandparents we would play card games for hours such as Hearts, Poker and Tripoli.
Once I started recieving an allowance my love for Ameritrash began. I remember buying my copy of Fortress America at the local toy store. I bought every Car Wars supplement as soon as it came out and even joined the AADA.
In high school and college I played tons of Dominoes, Backgammon, and Chess. My wife bought Pirateer and we played that to death. I have started getting heavily back into hobby games in the past two years. I lean towards Ameritrash and Wargames but I'll play anything!
My GM philosophy is to not let the rules get in the way of fun. Lots of action and lots of crazy stuff will happen in my games.
I have a blog about rpgs, comics, and other stuff:http://sphereofannihilation.blogspot.com/
I love to read and I am on Goodreads. If you want to friend me on goodreads feel free to do so.
