About Me
I've been gaming since around 1977. The first real wargame I owned was PanzerBlitz. The first game I bought was Fortress Europa. These days I play mostly light wargames or Euros. Plus I've started doing a bit of map design for Vicotory Point Games.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
My other hobby is building paper card models. Its taking up a fair amount of my "game" time these days.

Favorite movies (in no particular order): The Right Stuff. Casablanca. The Rock. Con Air.
