Watch out because I’m going to release my inner geek. One of my hobbies is playing miniature wargames. You know the ones where you buy the miniatures, paint them, build terrain and play with them. Yup, those. My favorite one right now is Warmachine by Privateer Press. There is a group of guys I play with in the Carolinas called the NC Gunbunnies. I recently helped them create a riff on the Warmachine Steamroller tournament logo.

Challenge: Every year Transamerica Reinsurance helps to raise funds for the ASC (Arts & Science Council) in Charlotte, NC.
