I grew up playing videogames on an NES and SNES. I played my first tabletop roleplaying game when I was 11 years old. When I was 14 I spent the entire summer creating my own TTRPG system from scratch. At university I wrote my Master's degree dissertation on cyberpunk and my doctoral thesis on SF. I then co-authored an experimental book on SF called Conceptual Breakthrough: Two Experiments in SF Criticism.

I now game on my Nintendo Switch. I've also graduated from making up my own RPG systems to DMing a homebrewed DnD campaign using Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition. I am also an avid modern boardgamer with a preference for thematic Euro-style games.

Feature article: 'Sheffield: A meeple city'

Tabletop gaming is a social activity, as the example of Sheffield shows.

The Yokshire city is now not just the Steel City but also a Meeple City, as gaming opportunities and the number of possible venues for play have multiplied in the last few years.
