Bio: My love of gaming developed at a very early age, secretly playing Atari while my brothers had to go to school. My baby sitter taught me card games at the age of three. By five, I was a formidable opponent in Yahtzee to my oldest brother Michael, 12 years my senior. Over the next few years I honed in on my ability to out strategize largely in part to get around Michael's love of cheating. I became a force to be reckoned with. No one wanted to play with me because I always was one step ahead. Friends and family left me full of disappointment. By the time I was a teenager, I started experimenting with illegal substances to escape my gaming pain. I was rock bottom, a coke addicted 18 year old who's dream of group gaming was a distant memory to my harsh reality. Then there was light. I kicked my coke habit and found out that the internets held the key to my future. I found others like myself with an eagerness to congregate and play games. Fate took hold of me when I met a local nerd from online. Hand in hand, he guided me through a realm of RPG's which I had never played before. Some of it spilt into his bedroom and I was in love. Today I live the quiet life, in a small town. We built our game collection from a cherished few to now what spills out into almost every room of the house. With my love of new games and his obsession of thrift store finds we have a fairy tale life together. Gaming days are every Sunday. My pride is my son, a natural little gamer whose closet is filled with family games that we all enjoy. I couldn't be happier.
Interests: Went to my first 5 day Origins con! Besides games, I have been recently been obsessed with Battlestar Galactica, enjoy music, movies.
