Introduction to Gaming: I started gaming with the Nintendo Console. I got into Magic: the Gathering and D&D when I was in Junior High. From there it expanded into dozens of card games, rpgs, board games and miniature games.
Joining the HCO Family: I was reading an article on Hand Cannon when I saw a post from Lucas about the site looking for contributors. I offered my services because I had been writing battle reports on the Privateer Press Forums. Lucas invited me to come on board. From there I eventually transitioned to writing strategy articles and guides which eventually developed into podcasting. When Lucas stepped down from HCO, he asked me to take over administration of the site. It has been a long and fun road that I hope to keep handling with the devotion that Lucas infused the site with for so many years.
Achievements: I have tried to grow as a competitive gamer with focus on Legion of Everblight. I was able to win the 4th and 5th Intermountain Cups. I took first in the Templecon 2014 Iron Gauntlet Qualifier. As part of Team Stripes we took 3rd place in the 2014 World Team Championship. Outside of Warmachine and Hordes, I assembled Team Removed From Play to compete in The Gauntlet, which is a charity event based Board Games and Trivia which is hosted by Card Kingdom and Mox Boarding House. My team took 2nd in the first event (2014) and we were able to narrowly seize victory and take first in 2015.
