What is your favorite game of all time?
Dark Age of Camelot – My wife and I are addicted to Dark Age, so much so that I play 3 characters at once (and all of them poorly).. yes, I’m sick!

If you could make your own game, what would be the theme?
While I love the Dark Age style game to play, I think RTS games are the most complex and fun to write. I’d love to do an RTS that focused on fantasy like Lord of the Rings, or D&D.

Where is the coolest place you have ever been?
Ireland and Iceland.. I love the UK and Iceland. How can ya not love Ireland! It’s very neat going back and seeing birth records of your family from a small town in the county of Sligo. Its soooo gorgeous there, and they love dogs! I recall once seeing a family walking through a field in Ireland with 9 dogs all running ahead of them of varying breeds, and all playing with each other except for one, which walked by their side, an Irish wolfhound.

As for Iceland, I had an 8-hour layover in the airport, but got a detailed fly-over on the way in. It’s amazing how geo-thermal a place can look.

But truly, I think New England is the coolest place I’ve ever been to (and live!). I may be from Maryland, but I feel like I’m a New Englander (but without the wicked accent dere hun).

What is your favorite movie or book?
Gladiator and Lord of the Rings – They are also my favorite soundtracks =)

As for a book, hmm.. It’s a tough choice between the Harry Potter books and Comanche Moon (book read by Frank Muller). Yes, these books couldn’t be more different, but I love how Comanche Moon is written from 3 different sides, and of course, the amazing way Frank Muller reads it.

Just an FYI, Frank Muller is the world’s best audio book reader, if you haven’t heard him read a book, your missing out!

What is your favorite cartoon character?
Dexter from Dexter’s Laboratory – “And Computress said………………and then Dexter said.”
