I grew up on Kids in the Hall, Monty Python, SCTV, In Living Color, and Saturday Night Live, so I've always had a fascination for sketch comedy.  I've been writing sketch comedy for about ten years, as part of a troupe as well as on my own.

 

I also love board games and card games, and have been playing them since I was a kid.  More recently, I've gotten back into gaming and have started developing and designing my own games in the past couple of years.  I love both playing and creating games that make use of laughter, creativity, and strategy, but most importantly they have to be fun and make you want to play them again and again.  That's what I strive for when I create something new.  I'm really excited about introducing our first game to the world, and am in the process of creating many other great games to follow this one.

 

I'm really glad to have partnered with my good friend, Matthew on our first game, Cunning Linguistics.  His passion for gaming, and knowledge of mechanics, game play, and the industry have been instrumental in turning our first idea into a reality.

 

Some of my current favourite table-top games:

  • Pandemic
  • Favor of the Pharaoh
  • Forbidden Island
  • Various card games (poker, euchre, frustration, etc.) and word-based games (Boggle, Scattergories, Wise and Otherwise, etc.)

My current (not so current!) favourite video games:

  • Fire N Ice (NES)
  • Dragon Warrior Series (NES)
  • Super Mario 3 (NES - Can you tell I like the original Nintendo?)
