A curious, silly, passionately joyful 50-something father, husband, thinker, atheist, art lover, designer, cat lover, activist, explorer, learner, book lover, board/war gamer, environmentalist, science and history geek. Gamer since forever, story-teller, RPGer from when D&D was in a little white box. I adore stories and highly narrative RPGs. I am the founder of the iPad art discovery app, ArtSpin. George Bernard Shaw had it right when he said, “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” Interested in Storium to create, and play in, stories about WW2, 40s noir detectives, 1930s-50s British detectives and (mostly) non-fantasy genres mashing Apocalypse World, A Taste of Murder, and Fiasco-type mechanics into the gameplay.
