I am a 30-year-old math teacher in Texas with a passion for physics, naval history, camping, anime, and fantasy. My gaming philosophy is that everyone at the table should work together to make sure that a good time is had by all. In my opinion, whatever a character does before the start of a campaign isn't as important as what they do once the campaign starts.
My introduction to roleplaying came when I was 13, and I have been doing it ever since. I have experience in forum-based play-by-post, instant message RP, face-to-face, and long-distance roll20 games. I have played and GMed roughly an equal amount of time.
If you're familiar with the player types described by Robin Laws (which if you aren't, you should check out, since these have different meanings attached than their normal usage), I am a pretty good mix between the Storyteller and the Tactician, with elements of the Method Actor and the Power Gamer as well.
I am comfortable GMing Star Wars Saga Edition and Pathfinder 1E, as well as introducing people to a lesser-known system called Microscope. For what it's worth, I also made homebrewed a rules-light How to Train Your Dragon system, as well as a half page GM-less system for students in an elective class.
