Law School graduate living in Philadelphia, Pa. We love these games because we can share them, and grow together as we experience each new tool experiment with togetherness. I have been playing board games and RPGs for as long as I can remember, and coupled with tenacity and weirdness I love the work I do with Gamingtrend, sharing that passion with all of you.
