One Christmas, long, long ago, my cousin "Georgie" MacLean received a copy of "Tactics" from our grandfather. We were very enthusiastic from the start, having already been playing chess for many years. It snowballed steadily from there...

Born in the Grampian Highlands of Scotland. Los Angeles became my longtime home beginning in the late 1960s. Now living in Japan (but part of each year in Scotland).
Currently designing/developing Gatros, which is a reworking of the old Metagaming Microgame "One World" (not to be confused with the Simulations Canada title, "The One World"). See link below for more info.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
What else is there but gaming? Seriously, my true, life-long passion is music and the history thereof. I also worked as a computer programmer and general systems analyst for many years. Though (mostly) retired, I still dabble and give sage (if "old-school") advice on interface design to the up-and-comings of the profession (for a fee, of course).
