GENERAL:

Real life:  Husband, Commercial/Industrial Construction Project Manager
Other life:  Volunteer for HPS Simulations, Military Historian, Wargamer

WARGAMING EXPERIENCE:

Began wargaming in 1972 with Luftwaffe, and enjoyed all the tactical level wargames available, including PanzerBlitz, Panzer Leader, Sniper!, Patrol, Tank!, Richtofen's War, Spitfire, Air Force/Dauntless, Air War, Tobruk, and Squad Leader. On the other end of the spectrum I particularily enjoyed the first edition War in the East, War in Europe, and War in the Pacific.

I became a computer wargamer in 1984 and have enjoyed many wargames and flight simulations similar to my tastes in board wargaming.
