Welcome to my node in the graph known as the World Wide Web. May you live forever or die trying!

This site contains information about my family () and my hobbies, which include role-playing and music. For professional information, you can check out my work page.


The best place to start is with a convenient listing of my games.

Of course, the best game in existence is Rolemaster, for which I've written a book. I also edit for an on-line publication: The Guild Companion.

Our current game has an on-line utility.


It's an odd combination, perhaps, but my favorite genres are folk, country, and gothic metal...


  • One of my all-time favorites: Queensryche's Mindcrime is a stellar album.
  • Think metal needs more, not less, opera? Nightwish is the answer.
  • For a great live concert, check out Dream Theater.

In that vein, here are the best live shows I've experienced:

  1. Butcher Babies and Nekrogoblikon, in goblin garb
  2. Within Temptation and Amaranthe, at the rail
  3. Dream Theater at the Hippodrome
  4. Dream Theater at the Orpheum
  5. Epica, Eluveitie, and The Agonist, with stage-side seating
  6. Nightwish and Kamelot, road trip to Philly
  7. Queensrÿche: Promised Land, with Type O Negative
  8. Delain, at the rail, with hearts from Charlotte for We Are Sophie/Groot
  9. Operation: Mindcrime, because Mindcrime
  10. Sonata Arctica, free show when Nightwish bailed
