Lewis Pollak

PROFILE:

Lewis Pollak has been a member of the Gaming Trend community since before it held that name, and they finally let him join the staff all these years later, probably so he would stop asking. His illustrious career encompasses such ridiculous decisions as quitting medical school to start a tabletop RPG company and briefly becoming a car salesman. A gamer since the days of loading 'Hunt the Wumpus' and 'Eliza' from cassette on a TRS-80, Lewis enjoys card and board games, as well as video games. He enjoys the dying breed known as the turn-based RPG, as well as racing, puzzle, and adventure titles. He has also been known to give his life over to MMORPGs for extended periods of time.
