Dave I’m Dave Guskin – lapsed physicist, programmer and gamer, friend to many, sometimes humorous, always thoughtful, and interested in exploring a variety of ideas bouncing around in my head.

I currently live in Seattle, WA and work at Wizards of the Coast – the company that brings you Magic the Gathering and Dungeons and Dragons.  I live in the West Seattle area, in a reasonably sized house (that I rent) with my adorable troublemaker Maxwell (he’s a beagle).


Here are some random things of interest about me!

  • My favorite quote: “When nothing seems to help, I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before.” — Jacob Riis
