When I’m not playing D&D or spending time with my family I am a Registered Nurse in a Skilled Nursing Facility working as an MDS Coordinator and Quality Management Coordinator. I was born in a small Northern Minnesota town in 1977 and have been playing D&D since 1985. After high school I enlisted directly into the Marine Corps where I was a Mortarman with the 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion in Twentynine Palms, CA. I DM’d while in the Corps and when I got out didn’t waste any time starting up a campaign with my buddies from high school (plus one I picked up in the Marines). I have a beautiful wife who also plays D&D (I hit the jackpot, boys!) and a five-year-old son who will be welcome at the gaming table as soon as he is ready. I still play D&D with most of the same people I played with in high school; I’ve known some of them for over 30 years. I credit D&D with keeping us all together so long despite how we’ve spread across the Midwest United States.
The greatest moment of my life, other than my wedding and birth of my son of course, is the weekend I played D&D with E. Gary Gygax himself. It was at a bed & breakfast in LaCross, WI. An old friend of mine set it up. There were eight of us that had the opportunity to have Gary spend the weekend with us and actually DM a session back in 2006. Gary died a couple of years after that so I was very lucky to have had the experience. It is literally something I’ll be telling my grandkids about!
