About me

Gender MALE
Location San Francisco, California
Introduction In 1980 when I was 12, I became enthralled by a game called Dungeons and Dragons. This game would go on to become an obsession throughout my teen years and has always been a major part of my lifes passion. For me it inspired my creativity, encouraged critical thinking, created friendships and developed social interactions and created a bonding with a larger community I rarely found elsewhere. From B/X to AD&D 1 and 2 , through the d20 revolution of 3rd and 4th editions, I have always found something along the way I enjoyed about the game. Although as of late I have been reconnecting with that magic that I lost long ago. That spark of imagination and exploration back into the depths of my creativity. In discovering the Old School Renaissance and reconnecting with my old roots, I am once again reminded of what it was that drew me to the game in the first place. The wonder of the unknown, of what lay beyond that yawning portal...
Interests I am primarily a Dungeon Master but also enjoy being a player for a good GM. I also greatly enjoy reading and playing many other RPGs of a fantasy/sword and sorcery genre ( Talislanta, Harn, Runequest, Call of Cthulhu, GUPRS fantasy, Skyrealms of Jorune, the list goes on). But always my heart has been for Dungeons and Dragons.
