I have had an exciting life as far as careers go. I was Director of Marketing at a couple different places and then went into IT where I worked as a consultant for one of the largest IT companies in the world. About 6 years ago, I was laid off from that large company and without anything lined up for my next step in life, I decided to go back to school. Last May, I graduated from the University of Memphis with a degree in Communication and a minor in Philosophy at 42 years old. Since graduation, I’ve been doing some consulting in the areas of IT and Marketing just trying to figure out what adventures lie next for me. Well, a couple of my old friends I used to work with (and play MMORPG video games with) called me up a few weeks ago and told me about this incredible tabletop gaming project they have been working on for over a year now. Being pretty much a total newbie to the world of tabletop games and loving to hear stories on how things began, I decided to write a blog about how this thing came to where it is now.
In addition to the designer blog for my friends, I plan to use this site to blog about the things that inspire me in everyday life. Being middle-aged (almost 43), I have found there is still so much great stuff out there to learn and to share, it just takes a child-like spirit to jump in and see what it’s all about.
I approach everything as a total newbie, someone willing to learn looking for people willing to pass on their knowledge to someone else and have some fun in the process! =)
