About me

I've always enjoyed the rise and fall, the highs and lows, the victories and defeats, in stories. As a reader and writer as far back as I can remember, I fell into a world and went on an adventure with those characters and then inevitably, a new world would come along and I'd go follow them... Later in life, I became an improviser. The spontaneity of both the creator and the audience to create a similar story was always a thrill. TTRPGs, for me, feel very similar. Whether as player or GM, we are telling an improvised story together. We are creating it as we go and who knows what'll happen! It, for me, is a pure exercise in storytelling. Let's create a story together!

GM style

I enjoy all aspects of TTRPGs, though admittedly I'm a roleplay-centric GM. Plenty of combat and puzzles to go around, but with my background in improv (trained in both Chicago and Los Angeles), a shared narrative draws me in for each session. I bring surprises, fun times, variety of characters to meet and mysteries to solve. I can't wait to see who we get to meet and how their story unfolds!
