Game List for Wayne Read
|Hi, I'm 41 years old (in 2006) and live in Tiptree, Essex, England with my
wife Janine, and 6 year old daughter Libbie. I'm originally from
Lutterworth in Leicestershire, and visit there regularly.
I've recently changed jobs, and am currently working for a defence company
as the Programme Manager supplying the Navigational Bridge equipment to
the Royal Navy's new Type 45 Destroyer. Prior this my civilian career
included, a short spell as a Project Manager supplying Communications
Equipment to the Army and before that I spent nine years as a Senior
Systems Engineer, and then as a Programme Manager, for a company that
manufactures Navigation Radar and Display equipment.
My Military career started when I left school and joined the Royal Navy,
spending twelve years training and working as a Radar Maintainer. I did
two Gulf Patrols, (but managed to miss the fighting both times) and one
trip to the Falklands. I was lucky enough to travel to forty one countries
in the Navy and have added eight more since. I will fulfil my ambition of
visiting fifty countries when I go to Slovenia in May 2007.
Some of my exploits in the past have included - driving across the USA
single-handed (NY to LA - it took a month), eighteen free-fall parachute
jumps, bungee jumping, jet skiing and scuba diving. Now that I have a
family my hobbies are a little more sedate, mainly DIY and diplomacy.
I discovered Dip about 14 years ago but, like many others, could never get
enough people to play face-to-face. I've played in a number of UK postal
zines over the years, and started playing e-mail dip in 2000. I've since
played in over 50 games on the site, and in 2005 thought it was time I
gave something back by becoming a GM.
