Independent Game Designer-
My middle school discovery of that '2nd edition' game in the 80's began a life long love of gaming. I particularly like systems that favor friends getting together, sharing a story and some laughs along the way (sorry hexagonal wargames).
My gaming credentials include playing 1st edition Cthulhu with the writer at DundraCon 'back in the day', play testing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles before their was a TV show and untold hours reading, DMing and playing all manner of board and role playing games. Where some garages are filled with tools, mine has shelf space dedicated to board games, RPGs and card games.
