About me

Hi! I'm an Ennie-award winning game designer for Kobold Press, Paizo, Wizards of the Coast, Atlas Games, Storm Bunny Studios & more! I've been running games for 35 years & in a ton of different systems. There's no hobby I love more than RPGs & no better way for friends to hang out together. I've competed at Iron GM, run games at Gencon & taught tables of merciless 12-year olds at the local library. Let me bring that experience to you!


GM style

I'm the full package-- I love the voices, I dig description, and I'm equally at home in heavy roleplaying as I am roaring into combat as I am skulking into the shadows. Do you want your background incorporated into the storyline? Awesome! Did you want to just roam the wilderness for weeks on end, exploring ruins and facing down dinosaurs? You got it. Hexcrawl to bar brawl, I'm your GM. (safety tools included!)
