About me

First of all I was recently named Baldman Games' DM of the Year for 2021! I have been a Dungeon Master and Game Master for 25 years. The very first TTRPG I played was 2e AD&D but it quickly expanded and enveloped a myriad of other game systems. My stories are player driven, narrative driven, and combat driven in that order of importance. I have created and run games in three different homebrew settings over the years and have run hundreds if not thousands of D&D Adventurers League adventures. I have been lucky enough to run not two but THREE Dungeons and Dragons 5e campaigns all the way to level 20. Being a fan of all different genres of TTRPGs I have run sci-fi, horror, comedy, drama, fantasy, and everything in between. I have run Spelljammer, Planescape, Ravenloft, Greyhawk, Forgotten Realms, and even Dark Sun campaign settings quite extensively. ALIEN RPG, Mothership, Lancer, Werewolf, Vampire the Masquerade, Mork Borg, Cyberpunk (2020 and RED), Esper Genesis, Shadowrun, Ten Candles, Dungeons and Dragons (2e AD&D through 5th edition), Call of Cthulhu, and even Delta Green are all games that I love and have experience with and draw heavily on when I design adventures and settings. One of my greatest joys in life is listening to and watching my players as they discover new things, meet new NPCs, travel the planes, and encounter wondrous (and horrific) new creatures. One last thing - I find it important to state up front that my games are not player vs. DM. All the games I run are a COOPERATIVE storytelling experience and I am here to guide you in that experience and to make sure that you stay within a few set rules and guidelines. Beyond that I will be rooting for you and your party just as hard (if not harder) than you will be, I will feel the great heights as you kill your first dragon and the terrifying lows when you lose your first party member to an illithid's ravaging tentacles. Let's create our own epic. Together we will tell a story that will be passed down through the ages.

GM style

Player driven, narrative driven, combat driven in that order of importance. My combats are visceral, challenging, and tactical. I love to do character voices, make sound effects, and hand out extravagant descriptions like candy. I also give out awards for puns, dad jokes, incredible role playing, and smart thinking.
