From website bio:
Hello! A little bit about me here. I graduated summa cum laude from Rutgers back in '93 with a BA in English Literature, did a brief stint in graduate school at the University of Toronto before deciding that I didn't want to be a professor. Instead I ended up in academic administration. Presently I work at Rutgers Unversity, on the Camden Campus, specifically in the Summer Session Office, where I am the Coordinator of Summer Session, Winterim and Special Projects. I also taught a couple of times with the Fine Arts Dept. Additionally, I do freelance artwork, mostly illustration for fantasy, with some work appearing in gaming magazines and modules. For examples, see the artwork pages above. I've won some random awards along the way, including the L.Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future, and some SciFi and Gaming convention art awards, though I rarely get to them anymore. I also perform music semi-professionally as an individual and in various groups - see the music pages above for more information.
For fun I play in the SCA, specifically in the East Kingdom, in the Barony of Iron Bog where I'm known as Master Arden of Icombe. I hold a Laurel in that organization, which is their award for the arts (in my case, for music and musical performance). I perform music and dance, archery, occasionally fence and throw axes, and a variety of crafts ranging from leatherwork, woodwork and ivory to manuscript illumination. Beyond the SCA I partake of various role-playing games and CCGs, sometimes playtesting them, amass large collections of medieval and renaissance weapons and practice using them, and way too many musical instruments (see the Whiteraven page for more info). I am quite fond of anime (as pictures of my office would attest), with Ghost in the Shell SAC being my favorite, and have a growing collection of figurines. I have an interest in dinosaurs, particularly therapods, and various casts of bones and skulls fills the rest of my office. I also volunteer with my wife at the Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge, mostly feeding the hordes of fatally cute baby animals. I'm also a Joss Whedon fan, enjoy LoTRs, most fantasy and sci-fi stuff, and a variety of other activities as I've gotten to them, including bicycling, hiking, writing and such. But life all too often gets too busy to do it all!
