I've been gaming since I was 11 years old and my best friend gave me the Robotech RPG for my birthday. I became the de facto GM for my group of friends (since I was the one who owned the book) and have carried that mantle for the past 24 years.
Currently I GM a couple fantasy games using my homebrew ruleset (Psimancz) in Westwood and Lakewood. My running style is very player dependent and I tend to improv a lot. As a player, I typically have fairly developed backgrounds and enjoy getting deep into the story and immersing myself in the game world.
I have played all manner of games from sci fi and fantasy to horror, super hero and modern. My favorite genre is fantasy although I enjoy taking a break to visit other genres as well..
