Rick is the President of Chaosium. His career in the gaming industry started in the mid 90's when he moved to the UK and helped with the layout for Tales of the Reaching Moon magazine. His Gloranthan and RuneQuest roots stem back to the late 70s. An avid RPG collector, his love of all of Chaosium's publications, plus anything Gloranthan or RuneQuest in nature has earned him the nickname "Mr. Suitcase" (or "Monsieur Valise", as he is known on the Continent). His Meints Index to Glorantha is the comprehensive product guide to all Gloranthan publications, games, conventions, and miniatures produced from 1975 to 1997. In 1999, Rick founded Moon Design Publications, with the launch of the Gloranthan Classics line of reprints of classic RQ2 material.
Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Rick spent 25 years as a corporate trainer in the automotive industry before becoming a full time Chaosium employee. He now resides in Ann Arbor, Michigan, a university town often dubbed the "San Francisco of the midwest".
Rick is a member of Chaosium's Board of Directors, and a co-owner of the company.
