When I was 8, I went to the movies with my parents and saw that Star Destroyer bearing down on Princess Leia's ship at the beginning of A New Hope. That moment stuck with me and really opened the door to a lifelong love of science fiction, fantasy and horror.

I've played RPGs since the dark ages. Holmes edition D&D (who remembers it?!) and later 1st edition AD&D. Now I play in my grown son's 5th edition campaigns and run my own GURPS Monster Hunters game set in 1940s Seattle.

My professional life has been in broadcasting, which led me across the country working in radio and television. I met my wonderful wife along the way and we now live in Roanoke with our cats and fish.

Mysticon is probably my favorite weekend of the year. I have voiced and produced the Mysticon TV commercials for years, and love the "family reunion" feeling of this con. I can't wait to see everybody again this year!
