Introduction
Grew up in Cleveland.  Went to school in Boston.  Tried being a television writer in Los Angeles (with a little success).  Moved to Seattle in 1995 to join Wizards of the Coast to become a game designer and have been there ever since. Since 2005, I have been the Head Designer for Magic: the Gathering.  Met my wife Lora at Wizards. We were married in 1998.  We have three kids (2000 - Rachel , 2004 - Adam & Sarah - yes twins). We built a house in a suburb called Issaquah. All in all, things are going pretty well.
