Favorite Game: Star Wars Rebellion

I have always loved the hobby and board game industry. Whether it was running Friday Night Magic or managing a Warhammer Store I knew I always wanted to work in this industry. When I graduated from Utah State University with my MBA I moved to Minnesota with my wife and two kids to be a sales manager for Asmodee and have never looked back! I enjoy a good board game night with friends and family or a quiet video game night alone. I also am Spider-man’s biggest fan, I think my kids Peter and Gwen would have to agree!

Favorite Game: Star Wars X-Wing Second Edition

Born and raised in Northern California, I have travelled more in the past decade to compete in board game tournaments and attend gaming conventions than any reasonable reason. I collect games for the rules, I love those sweet, sweet rules. A perfect weekend for me is sleep-deprived gaming goodness amongst friends learning new rule-sets and trying to break them.

Favorite Game: Jaipur

I am a collector of nerdy hobbies, with a passion for gaming in particular. At this stage in my life, I enjoy curating game nights for various groups of friends and family, especially when the people involved aren’t huge gamers. Outside of being a nerd, I also love attending live stand-up comedy shows and playing (probably too much) Apex Legends. I have (what sometimes feels like) too many interests, but ultimately, my all-time favorite activity is being around people I love the most. Oh, and taking weird photos with my younger brother.

Favorite Game: Adventure Mart

An Oregon Native, I grew up in the attic of a crafts store and the basement of a church. I went to Alaska to build a few hangers and came back with two degrees. You may find me hiking the Washington Cascades, sculpting/ painting for some galleries, and studying Japanese.  I've been playing D&D for twenty years but took a blizzard in the Yukon a decade ago to discover I loved playing board games. I met my wife in Minnesota, and we have a lazy dog named Tolstoy- he's 4 and still trying to decide if he is, in fact, a dog or a carpet.

Favorite Game: Star Wars Clone Wars (a Pandemic Game)

Small town MN born and raised, went to college for radio broadcasting because I love to use my voice to inform and educate people while also being a goofball on the mic! Mainly a TCG and RPG gamer but board games are my jam too. 2 fun things about me; I love British culture and studied abroad over there for a semester, and I am a self-taught/trained metal vocalist. I can make brutal sounds with my voice!
