Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Started playing with AD&D 1e and GMing with AD&D 2e. Ran D&D 3.x, 4e briefly, then became a fan of indie games and the OSR and expanded my horizons from there. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.
