Shoe has been playing MTG since mid to late 1994, He acquired the nickname ‘Shoe’ through a stupid joke made during a MTG game about the Chimpokomon episode of South Park.He loves MTG and gaming in general and hopes to work designing games professionally one day. He plays mostly multi-player, but will sneak in a game of MTG whenever he can.Shoe is a proud father of 4 beautiful children (ages 3, 5, 6 and 8) and currently works in IT. He has played in one PTQ and dropped after the first round to play a free draft of 9th edition…which he got 2nd place.His antics have been featured on several MTG sites such as on the WOTC website in Chris Millar’s house of cards for a stupid Sky Swallower deck HERE, when his friend who started the whole ‘Shoe’ thing made fun of his hat at a PTQ HERE, once at Star City Games, when Abe Sargent liked (and expanded on) the idea of a casual banned and restricted list - after the restricting of Ponder and Brainstorm in Vintage, the B&R most casual playgroups adhere to loosely - HERE, once when he was one of the runners up in the "Share the Magic" contest by WOTC HERE, and on Commandercast, HERE.
