I am a passionate, well-spoken young man (26) raised by hippies in the far west (Chadron, NE) on stories, drum-circles, and late night talks around bonfires. I started playing D&D when I was 10 with only a 3rd Edition Monster Manual. Not knowing the rules, I invented a system called "Mania" that my siblings and I play to this day.
I attended the University of Iowa, having moved to Dubuque, IA about 120 miles from its campus. Having initially studied Biochemistry I switched to English Literature and a minor in Russian Studies when I discovered Biochem majors didn't have time to eat or sleep let alone play table-top RPGs. I dropped out after 3 years of school to wallow in debt, due to a personal crisis.
My dream is to be a published writer for Paizo, or any other table-top publishing company. Besides 3.5 D&D (entirely Eberron, I love you Keith Baker) and Pathfinder (meeting John Compton at GenCon 2015 almost killed me) I am starting to dabble in Shadowrun.
