I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What life would be like if I lived in another time or place, and
whether I'd be able to survive there. Various games and systems,
and how to break them in interesting ways. Engineering problems.
Why I'm thinking and feeling what I am.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I get together with a regular gaming group on Fridays, so I'm
pretty much always in Federal Way hanging out and playing Savage
