Matt Stevens has been roleplaying since his thirteenth birthday, and he was designing his own systems before his fourteenth. Eighteen years later he's still fooling around with roleplaying games when most people are doing something useful. His favorite games are Traveller (no surprise), Empire of the Petal Throne, Justice, Inc., Call of Cthulhu, Feng Shui, Over the Edge and his own game Two Fisted Tales. When not gaming he's reading mysteries or anthropology, drawing pictures, cooking Arabic food or working on his political science dissertation. He lives alone in Queens, New York without any cats whatsoever.
