I’ve been playing D&D since I first purchased the D&D Basic boxed set in the 70’s and I’ve been a fan ever since. I’ve played and run every version of D&D since, with the exception of 4th edition. I’ve also played and run other RPGs like Gamma World, Paranoia, Space Opera, Top Secret, Champions, Marvel, and many others (yep Geek). I am not in any way, shape, or form an expert in D&D 5th edition or RPGs in general and I will make mistakes as a DM from time to time.

I can assure you that I really enjoy running D&D games and I try to make it the best experience I can for all involved. I like to run my games with an even hand. Rules are important but so is having fun, so I might make some quick rulings during a game if things get too bogged down trying to figure out something. I will discuss these things during breaks or after the game with players so that a correction or better ruling can be made later. In my world players should expect to get the advantage, I hope to run a game that the players and myself will have a lot of fun in.


AGE: 56

Location: Cedar Falls, IA (CDT).


I was born on Long Island and raised mostly in Bay Shore. I joined the USAF right after High school, and have been stationed in England, the Philippines, and the US, as well as temporary duty in other countries. I was a Tech Controller (which is a fancy way of saying communications technician) for most of my time in service. After I left the military I started working for Cantor Fitzgerald in 1991, We worked out of the World Trade Center, tower 1. I just got off the night shift on the morning of Sept 11, 2001 and had left the building about 40 mins before it got hit. I lost a lot of friends and coworkers that day and it made me appreciate all the other people in my life a lot more. I left Cantor Fitzgerald in 2006 to worked for Morgan Stanley until I left in 2009. Failing health due to diabetes has caused me to become disabled. It's a health concern I'll be dealing with for the rest of my life. I'm currently disabled and have a great deal of time on my hands, so if I don't put some of my time into gaming, I'll probably drive my sweetie (fiancee) nuts and she'll kill me (J/K).

Update: I've recently moved to Cedar Falls, IA with Gene. We are enjoying our new home and life and I hope to be walking on my prosthetic leg regularly soon.
