Brook Bullock is a founding member of the Red Dirt DnD podcast where he first portrayed Mak’ren Stoneshaper, the young Dwarf sorcerer. To be a productive member of society, Brook has taught English for over 25 years and has been an Advanced Placement Consultant for the College Board since 1997.
Brook started playing D&D with the 980s Red Box (Mentzer Edition) and moved into AD&D 1e & 2e, but then took a break to during the 1990s “to be an adult.” However, some of his closest, lifelong friends from those gaming days still get together from scattered locations across the country to roll dice. One of those marathon weekends introduced Brook to D&D 3rd Edition, and he was hooked once again.
When not spending time in Ovathir, Greyhawk, Golarion, or the sci-fi reaches of outer space, Brook enjoys outdoor activities right here on Earth with his wife and family, riding his motorcycle, and, of course, reading into the wee hours of the night.
