Together for twenty years, my wife Lu and I are closer and more in love than ever. Together we've collaborated and created three wonderful boys, and one adorable daughter who are growing into strong, smart, and lovely men & women.

Playing and collecting tabletop games is my hobby du jour, and I love it.

This is my game room, I call him Terrence. I spend my time here when I'm not writing, drawing or working. My kids, Lu and I play the pictured games together. I have over 129 games at the time of this writing, but my collection is in a constant state of flux.

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly, because you tread on my dreams.
