I'm a game designer and freelance journalist and occasional hiker and all-around-busy family guy.
I've written for newspapers and local magazines, including the Valley News, our excellent local paper, as well as The Burlington Free Press, Vermont's largest daily; my quads are still burning from coming down the steep side of Mt. Washington; Penny Press, the first board game I co-designed, is in the wild; and my 13-year-old son keeps putting the 'B' in busy.

And many of you know that PENNY PRESS, the board game another fellow and I designed, won Cards Against Humanity's 2013 Tabletop Deathmatch. We had an incredibly successful campaign on Kickstarter, and the final product is available on Amazon and other retail outlets.
Here's one of the many kind reviews (you can see more at our page on Boardgamegeek):
And finally, I've got an ebooks -- FINDING FUNBOY -- available for Amazon's Kindle. It's in the lending library, so if you're a Prime member, go check it out. Like, for free.
