About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Game Designer
Location Austin, Texas, United States
Introduction I live just outside Austin with my wife Holly and a trio of cats.
Interests I love to tell stories. Almost all of them are true and there is only slight embellishment involved. It is the art of the telling that can make even the most mundane events interesting. I have fallen into the Theatre and have really enjoyed it. The bonds formed when working with a group of highly motivated and talented individuls are priceless. It is also really fun to be the center of attention from time to time.
Favorite Movies I don't know if these are my favorite movies, but the are the ones I watch over and over again: Raisin' Arizona, Fight Club, Snatch, Dr. Strangelove, Big Trouble in Little China, Spinal Tap, Unbreakable, Princess Bride, Stripes, Jaws, The Wrath of Kahn, Aliens, Bladerunner, The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Favorite Music Depends on my mood. Sometimes funk with horns is what I want. Other times I get immersed in the Texas vibe that Jerry Jeff and Willie deliver. 80's metal is fun. Classics like The Guess Who and Boston never get old to me. Often I just put the radio on 101X and listen to whatever is playing. When at work I put on my headphones and listen to Japanese traditional or the Kodo Drummers. Queen is my favorite musical group of all time.
Favorite Books Shogun. Neverwhere. The Lord of the Rings trilogy & The Hobbit. War of the Worlds. I *loved* the Adventure series when I was a kid. Hal and Roger Hunt going on expeditions to the Amazon, Congo and South Pacific were books that shaped my childhood. Right now I have a stack of self-help books that I am reading but don't seem to be completing. Currently for fun I am reading the Gormenghast series. You have to really want to read those books to make it to the end.
