Video Reviewer, Segment Contributor
My two biggest passions are gaming and music. I have been into video games since the Nintendo and analog games since Heroquest, which I still have to this day! I got into Dungeons and Dragons in my teenage years and started playing Magic the Gathering with the release of the Ice Age expansion. Shortly after, I found a love for hobby miniature games and have over 2000 models. Although I have had board games most my life, it wasn't until about 2011 when I started to get into designer games when I was introduced, like many, to Settlers of Catan.
Outside of gaming, I am heavily into music. Currently I am able to play Guitar, bass, drums, violin and trombone. Some being self tought and others being classicaly trained. I started a heavy metal band called Morning Augment in which I sing and play guitar. You can find out more at www.MorningAugment.com
, or look us up on iTunes. We have played many shows with very large national acts and recorded a cd titled "Destroying What Was Once Beautiful".
As for my day job, I am a Systems Engineer with a local IT company in which I consult small and medium businesses on their IT infrastructure and design/implement network environments. I have been in IT since 2001 and am a career driven individual. My beautiful wife and I have been married since 2011 and we had our first child in Dec 2015.
I have been a Dice Tower contributor since 2014 and recently started a podcast, called MeepleCore, that I co-host with the singer of my band. We mainly focus on boardgames, video games, music and the occasional nerd culture topics.
