Troy discovered D&D in 1980 and that started a life long love with hobby gaming. He attended his first Gen Con in 1984 and has been going almost every year since. He has been running events at conventions almost as long, starting with narrative miniature games back in the '90s. He is a founding member of the Basement of Death gaming club, affectionately known as "the B.O.D." The B.o.D. formed in 2010 around a group of people with a common interest in Warhammer 40,000 and a basement. It then quickly expanded into playing all kinds of miniature, board, and role-playing games. You can follow the exploits of the club on their website www.basementofdeath.com and by listening to Troy with co-hosts Josh and Ty on the Playin' and Slayin' podcast.
