You’re visiting my web site, so you probably already know who I am. Or maybe you don’t. Or maybe you do, but you don’t really know all there is to know about me. Not that you’ll get all of that here, but at least I can fill you in a bit. So here you go.

Insofar as you care about me at all, you probably care about me because I care about games*. A lot. Probably more than you (though not necessarily). Probably more than is rational. Or wise.

I’ve been in the game business for a couple of decades. Started with my own small publishing company, then worked for a couple of mid-tier publishers, then ended up at Wizards of the Coast, working mostly on D&D. A few years in R&D, and then a couple as Brand Manager. I then took a hard right (all the way across the Atlantic) and landed in the UK, where I worked for four years as the Marketing Manager for Esdevium Games, one of the world’s foremost distributors of tabletop games. My most visible roles at Esdevium included running D&D in the UK, and serving as a sort of public spokesperson for tabletop games in the media.

I could make that long story a lot longer, but I’ll skip the sordid details for now. The crux is that over 20 years, I’ve written, designed, edited, illustrated, cartographized, marketed, and brand managed games of almost all sorts. (I’m talking about real games here, not your namby-pamby “electronic games.” Kids these days.) RPGs most of all, but also minis games, TCGs and conventional card games, and board games. Even game-related fiction. And a few games that defy categorization (here’s one for you: Star Trek: Red Alert). I’ve been indie, and big company, and everything in between.

Man, if you’re still reading, you must really find this fascinating. Just for the heck of it, I’m pasting a list of some of the stuff I’ve contributed to at the bottom of this page. You can also find a list at my Pen and Paper database entry. (If you dig any of that early stuff, you can find many of my early products at the CEE Classics section of DriveThru PRG.)

* It’s possible you care about this whole lot because you’re a friend or family member, and aren’t all that interested in the whole “games” thing (though you should be; games are awesome). In that case, ignore all that stuff above. Here’s the bit for you: I’m the dad of two great kids (who, incidentally, love games) and married to the fabulous Tammie of my life (also a gamer). As of this writing, I live in glorious Hampshire in southern England. Where I play a lot of games and do a lot of cool stuff that’s vaguely game related, like visiting castles and tank museums and things.
