I love my family most. My wife can be found selling hand-made quiet books on her Etsy store Birdie And Buttons. My oldest daughter is very busy learning to swim and my younger one is often following my oldest around.
I play as much soccer as possible when not playing board games. Many of my favorite board games have strong investing mechanics: 18XX, Age of Steam, Hansa Teutonica, and Imperial, and can take longer than 3 hours to play.
I spend some of my time writing poetry.
Seattle is my home. I enjoy many outdoor activities: longboarding, mountain biking, camping, snowshoeing, and snowboarding - I prefer snowshoeing to the others. I do not own a television, I find thought games like the dollar auction fun, and there is little better than a good IPA.
