I currently own a comics & games store that is in its first year of business.
Prior to this store, I ran a different games store for six years that carried jigsaw puzzles, comic books, Lego, board games (mainstream and otherwise) and Games Workshop.
I spent the five years before that working for Games Workshop.
I spent the eight years before Games Workshop working in a comic store that also focused on media/pop-culture collectibles and role-playing games (I added Games Workshop to their repertoire).
Before the comic store, I worked in a toy store for just over two years.
About half way through my tenure at Games Workshop and the twelve years prior, I played guitar in a punk rock band–or rather, I was always in a band of some sort, all of them small and independent: some never left the basement, others managed a (very) modest amount of touring around the province and across the country.
I think it’s pretty safe to say growing up hasn’t been one of my top priorities.
