A little about myself:
The gaming side of my life started as a child when I was heavy in to Magic: The Gathering. I played MtG from Beta through Mirage, when changes in my priorities came about and I dropped card/board gaming all together. Throughout high-school and college I focused mostly on my swimming career as well as a hobby of video gaming. I played a lot of CS 1.6, Starcraft, Warcraft, WoW, and a few other MMORPGs. This gradually took over my social life, my school life, and every other aspect of my waking hours...at which point I saw the need to quit.
After a short foray into a college major in bar games (darts, pool, etc.), I managed to finish my college education with a Bachelors in Microbiology. My interest in video games/board games/table games died, as I saw my social life eaten by the monster that is the "real world". I spent a year or two selling cell phones and making a bunch of cash. After that, I decided it was time to fuel that knowledge tank that is my brain and worked towards getting back in to Graduate School.
Entry in to graduate school has taken up a significant amount of my time. However, a friendship re-kindled from my MtG days has re-introduced me to my old hobby of gaming. This time around I play only in my small amount of spare time, and focus mostly on Euro style board gaming. My current favorite games are Dominion, Power Grid, Brass, Age of Steam, Automobile, and anything else new I can get my hands on.
As of July 2013, I have completed my graduate work, and now hold a Doctorate in Biophysics & Physiology.
For the last 3 years I have been doing video reviews which are posted here on BGG, as well as on Tom Vasel's gaming blog "The Dice Tower" which can be viewed at http://www.thedicetower.com/
. To date, I have posted over 360 videos that have garnered over 2 million views! My thanks to Tom for this opportunity!
