I've been gaming in one form or another for the last 20 years, mostly roleplaying or on the PC and consoles. I had my first exposure to wargaming in high school with the old Battletech boxed set, and while I wasn't immediately hooked (although I do love old-school Battletech still), it did plant the seed that later blossomed in college when I was introduced to Warhammer 40k. Sadly, as college tends to leave one busy and poor, I had to take a rather long hiatus from the hobby just as I was really getting started. A dozen years later, though, I've returned to the game, and it's easily become my favorite hobby. The wannabe artist in me loves the painting aspect of the hobby, and the armchair tactician loves the actual gameplay. At present, I play the Tau exclusively, but I have plans to start up a second army in the next year, most likely going with Chaos Space Marines.
Outside of the game, I'm in my early thirties, working in the IT industry, and am happily married, with a wonderful wife and daughter. My other interests include anime and manga (no surprise I'm playing Tau, eh?), console/ PC gaming and roleplaying (still), and just general geekery.
