"I started role-playing with Dungeons & Dragons in 1979. Since then I have played various gaming systems to include Shadow Run, World of Darkness, Battle Tech, Doctor Who, DC Heroes, Marvel Superheroes, Top Secret, Call of
Cthullu, Star Frontiers, Gurps, Toon, and many more. Live action role-playing experience includes, Amtgard, Society for Creative Anachronism, World of Darkness and True Dungeon.

I joined the RPGA in 2000 at my first GenCon and Pathfinder Society in 2012. I was a Wizards of the Coast Delegate for two years. I was the D&D Adventures League Local Coordinator for the Spokane and Eastern Washington.
I am currently the D&D tournament organizer for Uncle's Games. In addition to running games in stores I have run games at multiple conventions to include SpoCon, Rad Con, and Winter Fantasy, with the highlight being the
D&D Open Tournament at GenCon 2004 and 2005.

I am founder of Spokane Area Gaming Alliance (S.A.G.A) a not for profit organization that organizes and runs tabletop games for stores, conventions like World Con (Sasquan 2015), and charities like Extra Life (Children's
Miracle Network Hospitals)."
