About me

Adventure! Suspense! Romance? I've been running games professionally since 2017, with a focus on cartoonish shenanigans with a lot of heart. I love trying new indie systems, although my bread and butter are Cypher System and Under the Neighborhood (a game I designed myself)! If you want to try something new and whimsical, with plenty of help for newcomers, give one of my games a shot. If you're curious about what a game run by me will be like, you can check out the podcast "Quest Friends!" for a sample of my GMing style.

GM style

I'm a roleplay and improv-heavy GM who prioritizes what is most fun in the moment. I believe that mechanics and rules are important for good play, and I'm very hands-on in teaching new players how to use them, but I view these rules as a means for encouraging roleplay above all else. A game run by me will have expressive NPCs, story beats catered to your characters, and action that feels tense (even if it isn't actually that mechanically harrowing).
