Howdy! I live in New Hampshire (USA), and am employed to conduct historical research, as well as appraise sporting and military antiques for resale. I am also hired on an as-needed basis by certain major auction houses to do the same. But really, that just means I get to play around with guns, swords, and other fun stuff. Apart from board games (by which I really mean Ameritrash and old school hex-and-counter wargames by AH, SPI, et al.) my other interests are: fly fishing, shooting my target rifles (long range big bore, .22 match, and service rifles), big game and upland hunting, Pre-Raphaelite art, astronomy, entomology (particularly ants and termites), marine biology (especially molluscs and cephalopods), horology, and absolutely anything to do with the late Bronze Age.
Oh! I almost forgot - and orchids! I love orchids!
