Mike Eaton – Writer – Play Unplugged
Position: Freelance Writer
Location: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
Mike has been playing Magic: the Gathering since 1997, when packs of cards supplanted his former Transformers budget. This was important for his development. Before that, he played Decipher’s Star Wars CCG, which sadly lost its license and was replaced by all manner of unplayable horrors.
Mike studied writing at the University of Pittsburgh (at Greensburg – where everyone had their own bathroom, and it was glorious).
