About Me

My name is William Lawrence Murphy, but since birth I’ve been called skeeter.

I was born and raised on the central coast of California and now live in Southwest Washington, just north of Portland Oregon. From my house I can hear the trains and cargo ships sound their horns at night. On a clear day I can see Mt. Hood to the east. The rain keeps it green all year. I like it here.

I’ve been married since 1994 and have 3 kids.

Current Hobbies

  • games: ‘designer’ games. See boardgamegeek for my complete collection. Over 500 games as of 2013.
  • archery: shooting a takedown recurve at paper targets
  • music: I play drums. I also like trying out other things like the ukuelele, stylophone, korg kaossillator, and multibutton things.

Old Hobbies

  • kite flying: first flew a two string stunt kite around 1985
  • I’m sure there’s many others, I’ll add them as I think of them.
