John Danielski spent four years working his way through college as an interpreter at historic Fort Snelling. He played a soldier of 1827; wore the uniform, did the drill, fired the weapons, and ate the food of the period. He particularly enjoyed serving on the cannon crew of the Fort’s 12 pounder. He is a phi beta kappa, magna cum laude graduate of the University of Minnesota and has worked as a high school history teacher and small-town newspaper editor.
He has a black belt in tae kwon do and enjoys sailing, cross-country skiing, and hockey. He is a master of the board game Diplomacy, a determined if abyssal chess player, and is proud to say he has never played Halo. He lives with his closest advisor, Sparkle, the wonder cat.
