Writer. Gamer. Dad.
So just about every blog has an About Me section… but, honestly, I’m probably a lot like you.
I’ve got a hobby I care a lot about, and never enough time to explore it. I enjoy D&D, but I find myself drawn to new games and the thought-provoking play experiences they provide.
More and more I feel drawn to the special camaraderie you find at the gaming table. The collaboration, the sense of wonder, the jokes… whether it’s with my regular group or at a one-off at a game store, there’s something magical about getting together to play. Life has fewer and fewer face to face experiences, so I’ve come to cherish them.
My son is getting older, so I’m able to share my love of games with him. In fact, we have an ongoing collaboration here on my blog. Who knows if gaming will be as special to him, but that matters less than showing him what it’s like to connect with something in a deep way.
In any case having a child is the single most profound thing that’s happened in my adult life.
I don’t know if fatherhood has transformed me, but it has forced me to become more patient and accepting. It’s taught me about unconditional love, which wasn’t really part of my upbringing. And I’ve learned how to endure through sleep deprivation and what I’ll call responsibility fatigue. (If you’ve ever been the primary caretaker of a small child you’ll already know what I’m talking about.)
So, stay awhile, look around, and thank you for letting me share my passion with you.
