How old are you?
Born in 1979, stopped counting.

Where are you from and where do you live right now?
Born in West Yorkshire, England, U.K. Live in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, U.K.
In-between I've lived briefly in Switzerland and Germany.

What do you do for a living?
In no particular order:
-Freelance composer (writing what my Grandma would call "weird, plinky-plonky music" for concerts)
-Pianist (although I only do a run of concerts every few years)
-Cellist (live and studio work)
-Teacher (cello and piano)
-Lecturer (I have a PhD in Composition and Durham University manage to find me some work every year - eg. this year it's teaching orchestration to the 2nd years and performance to the 3rd years...)

Since when are you in the Hobby?
Got into Space Crusade and Advanced Space Crusade in about 1992, heard about 40k and adapted Adv Space Crusade to play on the kitchen table with a tape measure and terrain made in the school tech department :) Played 40k from about 1993 (whenever the 2nd Ed boxed set was released). Got into WH quite late in 7th Ed.

Which armies do you play?
VC were my first. For many years I said: "I'll never play WHFB but if I did, I'd play Vampires" :D
Sometimes I used to squash my 40k Daemons onto movement trays in 7th and 8th Ed...
With T9A I also added WDG, then HE, then ID, then finally DE.
ID are my favourites, as I remember back in 1991 or so, going to my friend's house to read White Dwarf and look at pictures of Chaos Dwarves with gunpowder weapons, big hats, and crazy machines with demons in them :)

Why do you support the 9th Age project?
It's a wonderful phenomenon. On paper, it has no reason to succeed as widely and as greatly as it does... and yet it does. All thanks to the willingness of all those involved to dedicate their time and energy to something, just for the sake of it being a great idea and others being able to share in it.
Someone, somewhere should do a Sociology PhD on the global phenomenon of The 9th Age :)
