I'm a first time DM, long time RPer.
I started out on text based forum RP, graduated to MMO rp and then fianlly found my way to tabletop.
My core game knowledge revolves mostly around D&D 3.5, Pathfinder, and my personal favorites: The World of Darkness series.
Being away from home and my home group led me to growing restless and wanting to roll some dice that I eventually picked up the DM's screen for myself and began to run games for others. This has made me come to realize how much trouble my old DM must have gone through to keep us happy when game night rolled around.
One of my favorite things to do is to make characters, so if you're stuck on an idea, I welcome being a sounding board for your ideas. Just make sure you give me a general idea for how you want your character to sit, becuase playing survival horror has led me to put out some rather crazy stuff before.
