A graphic designer and event planner in Canada, Mark's been playing RPGs since the good ol' days of the NES, starting with Dragon Quest. He likes to analyze games from a societal design perspective, sussing out what influences from the zeitgeist helped shape them, and why they became part of nostalgia, or slipped away into obscurity. In his spare time, he runs ConBravo!, a YouTube and Gaming convention in Ontario, and spends time with his wife and their extensive tea collection.
