Bio

I live in Sydney & love it. I write, mostly about RPGs. I've been a player of tabletop RPGs since 1981. Currently, I write for Campaign Mastery dot com. And for myself. I currently have 6 RPG campaigns active that I GM or co-GM regularly. This is actually a reduction on previous years. Some of my campaigns have been active for 30 years. The players may have changed but the game continues. I compose music, using the MIDI format. Eventually there will be CDs. I have enough material for more than 10 of them. My musical style varies all over the place - "psuedo-classical progressive rock" is one of the most common labels. I've won over 90 awards for composition. I'm single, never married, for a lot of reasons. I'd change that status if the right girl came along, but I'm not holding my breath waiting; I'm so set in my ways after 49 years and counting that it would not be an easy transition. I've been a fan of Formula 1 motorsports since the 1980s when I stumbled across a late-night broadcast by pure accident. I'm still not sure which race it was, but it featured a Nigel Mansell charge. I also follow Australian V8 Supercars with a varable level of passion. I like to philosophise on occasion and I'm known for a high level of Empathy. A good conversationalist, I treat twitter like an extended chat room. I'm a big fan of melodic rock, hard rock, 70s rock, and some heavy metal - with liberal sprinkings of other stuff to boot. I like Kiss, Asia, Heart, Matthew Sweet, ELO, Fleetwood Mac, Roxette, The Alan Parsons Project, 10cc, Nik Kershaw, Toto, the Bee Gees, Kim Wilde, Def Leppard, Tommy Emmanuel, and the list just keeps getting longer from there. I have a comics collection that starts pre-WWII and ends in the 90s because they got too expensive - except for KODT, which I still read. I like to cook but have trouble standing for long enough to do so because of a degenerative back injury that complicates my life. Anything else? Ask, I might answer.
