As it turns out, I am a human being. I know, big surprise.


If you know me in real life, then you’ll probably have a more appropriate way of contacting me. Use whatever method that is if you can.


I live in Wellington, New Zealand. I quite like the city. Its geography means it can’t sprawl like every other New Zealand city, and that makes it so much nicer to actually be in. Another benefit is the town belt, a series of large green spaces that can’t be developed. They can be walked though, and I’m pretty sure I’ve walked 95% of the paths in the section closest to where I live.

Previously I’ve lived in other areas in New Zealand’s North Island, spanning most of the island at this point. I’m not going to list every place here. Because I’ve moved around so much, place has become less important to me than the people around me. People are my home, more than anything else.

That said, the place dearest to my heart is Lake Waikaremoana. When I was young, my dad inherited a bach nearby, and we’d go there at least once a year. I have fond memories of the place, and know many of its walks and history. I look back at it today with some sadness, for reasons I am not sharing here.

I’ve also done some international travel for various reasons. I may write about my experiences one day, but that day is not today.


The things I’ve collected over the years.

(This is a reminder to myself to actually make this section)


I like having fun as much as the next person.

… of the tabletop variety

I play Dungeons and Dragons. I like stories, I like fantasy settings, so it’s fairly natural that I’d be interested in D&D.

In the future I’d like to put together a few spotlights on the characters I’ve played, but that requires the right level of time and attention. In the meantime, here’s some stuff:

I’m not really a board game person, but that’s more due to a lack of exposure and a group to play with than anything else.

… of the video variety

I like video games, so here’s some things that have had an impact on me:

Plus some others that I’ve enjoyed over the years:
