I'm a dad and high school Creative Writing and Language Arts teacher based in Baltimore, MD. I've been playing TTRPGs for 10 years and GMing for six years. As a teacher, I pride myself in my communication and interpersonal skills and I love the opportunity to teach new players how our games work. Over my career as a teacher, camp counselor, and adjunct professor, I have worked with kids from first grade to undergrad and I have led games for children as young as four.* I prioritize fun over 'rules-lawyering' and consider a session successful when the players leave smiling. There's nothing I enjoy more than seeing my players challenge my expectations and come through with creative solutions. *I can happily run games using the kid-friendly system "No Thank You, Evil!" by request. Unfortunately, this system isn't listed on Start Playing, so you have to let me know if you're interested in that.
With a background in Improv, I thoroughly enjoy theater of the mind & roleplay. Left to my own devices, I tend to lean into story over combat, but that is flexible. My specialty is with new and first-time players who are looking for a welcoming introduction to the game and I like to encourage players to help build the world and story along with me. I make an active effort to be as inclusive as possible, using Lines & Veils to make sure that my games are fun and safe environments for everyone. I think I'd be a good fit for you if you're looking for someone with a love of storytelling and humor.
