Started playing AD&D (1st ed.) back in the early 80's, switched to 3.5 for a number of years, and am now playing 5e. I have experience on both sides of the screen mostly offline but over the past few years I have completed several longterm Roll20 campaigns as both player and DM. I enjoy most aspects of D&D including the adventure, the storytelling, the combat, the rp, and solving the challenges. As a player, I try to stay in character and make choices the character would make. As a DM, I try to do my homework, make connections between the characters and the NPC's, and use backstory and accents (I'm not a voice actor but at least I try) to give the NPC's some depth. I really like the lore in D&D and try to make my worlds tangible and as full as I can. When not playing D&D, I am a happily married father that likes to surf, ski, and play music.
