About me

I'm a forever-DM with a penchant for narrative and a history with horror. I think the favorite way I've been described is as if a Choose Your Own Adventure book was possessed by an evil talk show host. I've got about 22 years of DM experience, and I've been doing it professionally for a couple years now. Few things excite me more than players with solutions that I didn't think of, or the eureka moments at the end of a puzzle. Except, perhaps, getting new people into the hobby.

GM style

Roleplay is my passion. I love using voices to let the players feel like they're communicating, and I don't shy away from them expressing emotions. The mysteries you face will be wrapped in riddles and puzzles, sometimes guided by prophecy, and always steeped in the most alive and believable world I can manage. While I respect tactics and crunch, I prefer to handle combat with a more cinematic and narrative flourish.
