About me

I’m an old fart who’s been playing and running Dungeons & Dragons since 1980. I’ve especially enjoyed passing on the tradition to the next generation by running games for my teen son and his buddies for the last 7 years. Now I’m focusing on educating new players, especially parents, on how to play with and DM for their own kids. Based in San Francisco, California (GMT -8) but available weekdays during normal business hours (9am to 5pm pacific time) by appointment. Perfect for Europeans looking for a 3-5 hour evening game after work.


GM style

I’m no Matt Mercer on Critical Role but I love RP, Character Voices, and painting the picture for the players! • Top priority: everyone at the table has fun, including the DM! • I love running villains who know what they’re doing (evil laugh) • I enjoy running a living, breathing, and ever-changing home-brew world • I use limited house and table rules, and require use of TTRPG safety tools by all players Unique Feature: "Tavern Time Warp" • All players begin the game in the stereotypical starting point: The Tavern • The Tavern exists only in pre-game time • Using Discord text and voice RP players can interact pre-game, between sessions, and even after wrapping the game • Players can discover key in-game clues from NPCs and other players outside their own gaming group! • Players can choose to bring those discoveries into the game even after they've started playing (disclaimer during session zero) • Meta? Yes, but its perfect for new players who are learning how to game • We've been play testing this feature and so far the players love it!
