Dave Banks is married, has three kids and two dogs, and lives in Kansas City. By day, he is an advertising executive, promoting goods and services across the web and in trade magazines everywhere. By night, he writes for the GeekDad blog, covering everything from robotics to movies to games. Mr. Banks is also a nationally recognized speaker, talking about families and technology at conferences from coast to coast, including the Penny Arcade Expo and SXSW. His many interests include Formula One and Major League Soccer, but above all else, he is a born-again tabletop gamer, converting others to cardboard and living by the mantra, “Hey, even if you lost, you still got to play a game. And that’s a pretty good thing.” You can follow him on Twitter at @davebanks.
