About

Panel Content
I'm a US Army veteran 101st Airborne Air-Assault Rakkasan Raider turned goat, sheep and hog rancher on California's scenic Central Coast. I was raised on the Atari 2600 and spent half of my youth playing Donkey Kong and Pac Man at the local Pizza Hut. 1st person shooters make me seasick but I have spent countless hours as an adult slashing through all of the Diablos and empire building Civilizations. I played Ultima Online for at least 15 years and built up Grandmaster everything on 2 accounts. Also a big fan of adventure games going back to Maniac Mansion and Zork. Now, I play mostly World of Warships and enjoy getting salty almost as much as playing the game. My streaming schedule is a bit random as living on a working ranch requires strange hours and unexpected detours. My WOWS clan is a bunch of old farts who die fast and bitch about the the nubs who don't know how to play... or maybe that's just me. I am also an avid bluegrass and old time banjo and guitar player and traditional music enthusiast, a Green Bay Packer Shareholder and lifelong superfan, a Star Wars 501st and Rebel Legion costume designer and trooper, a kick ass flyfisherman and was once a state ranked field archer. My favorite movies are JAWS and Joe Dirt. I grew up in Wisconsin, spent 15 years in Alaska and now call California home (often times reluctantly). At least the weather is great...

The Ranch

Panel Content
In 2012 we bought a small ranch on California's Central Coast and started raising dairy goats, St. Croix sheep and Mangalitsa hogs. It keeps us pretty busy but it is a labor of love and we wouldn't change it for anything. We also have chickens, turkeys, ducks, beehives, 9 dogs for herding and livestock protection and a couple of barn cats. We make most of what we eat and have a small farmstand to sell the excess to our neighbors and travelers.

Other Hobbies

I have belonged to the 501st and Rebel Legion Star Wars costuming groups since 2016 and have complete a Centurian level Stormtrooper kit as well as a Tusken Raider. The 501st "Bad Guys Doing Good" troop to various charities such as children's hospitals and other fundraising and awareness raising events. Basically wherever you see movie quality Star Wars costumes, you are probably seeing the 501st and Rebel Legions. If you have a love for Star Wars, an eye for detail and like meeting some fantastic people I highly recommend getting involved with these groups.

Fun with Fushun!! The Pan Asian T6 DD

Panel Content
I decided to roll back the Pan Asian DD line for the Research Bureau and am really having a lot of fun with it. It was the first line I completed in WOWS so it has been a long time since i have run a lot of these ships and i had forgotten how effective deep water torps can be. I'm running this T6 Fushun with stock everything and a 10 point captain with standard dd skills. Let the Devastating Strikes begin!

Tashkent, the Russian Mosquito 500+ hits

I have reset my Russian DD gunboats for the new Research Bureau and am really enjoying this line again. My thoughts on how to grind the lines, the Research Bureau itself and how i like to play the Tashkent.
