Biography

I have been a U.S. Marine, a reporter, a bartender, a landscape designer, a freelance writer, an actor and a retired teacher of 18 years – 16 of those years I taught in a middle and high Alternative school setting. I am passionate about history and I am passionate about gaming. I grew up in a family that thrived on board games. my earliest memories have me sitting spellbound over the knowledge I obtained … while having fun! I began designing historical games 20 years ago and currently have a dozen published designs with six different companies, among which are: King Philip’s War, Lincoln’s War, Revolution Road and Maori Wars. I have a dozen more due to be published over the next three years including The Fall of Siam, Bleeding Kansas, Wolfe Tone’s Rising and the third edition of Hearts & Minds.
