About me

I've always enjoyed creating narrative experiences for audiences since more than two decades ago, either as a stage director or a live performer. So when I discovered the world of tabletop RPGs, I instantly fell in love with it. Before long, I started running games for the public, and soon after, made the leap to doing it professionally. Among the online conventions that I've run games at include Gen Con Online, Origins Online and Roll20Con. I can't wait to share my love of RPGs with you, and hereby extend an invitation to you in joining me to discover exciting worlds, play awesome characters, and embark on unforgettable journeys.


GM style

I like to lean on my skills as a performer to act out characters, as a director to craft exciting and engaging moments, and as a writer and improviser to create surprising twists and turns that are full of suspense, drama, or comedy. At the same time, I like to encourage players to contribute ideas for the world that we'll be immersing ourselves in. Depending on the game, this might take the form of an in-depth character creation or a shared-worldbuilding process. Sometimes, during the game, I might even ask players what they imagine a place to be, or to describe how their characters end up succeeding at a task. I find that when everyone has a chance to bring their creativity to the table, it leads to lots of fun and memorable moments. In terms of group dynamics, I'll try my best to ensure that everyone has ample opportunities to be in the spotlight. Without pressure, of course. If a player wishes to take a more laidback approach and enjoys just witnessing all the hijinks happening around them, that's okay too. What's important is that we're all having fun, and no one feels left out.
