I'm a lifelong gamer with 11 years of hard-fought entrepreneurial experience, dedicated to a world where the gaming community leads the way in how to live courageously, compassionately, and creatively. I want to work for an organization of geeks - and earn a livable income on the Pacific Coast.

I've not worked ON games, but IN them - and ON game communities. I contribute to the GemStone IV Town Crier - the player-run news organization for the world's longest running, text-based MMORPG.

3. Marketing and business development - I've spent the last decade helping technical and creative firms tell their stories, and gain clients as a result.
4. Smelling good - no one has ever accused me of stinking up a room.
