About me

Dungeon Master for Hire. Available for parties, plenty of experience. My name is Chad, and I’ve told stories in commercials, comics, and in theme parks. I’ve been an author, a copywriter, a game designer, a creative director, a Walt Disney Imagineer, and Sr. Writer for Universal Creative. I owe all of this to Dungeons & Dragons sparking the desire in me to tell stories, to create worlds, and to play. I’ve been Dungeon Mastering since I was a kid, with games run at both Imagineering and Universal Creative.

GM style

I run a table where the rule of cool rules, where your fun is my priority, and, where we craft the story together. A table that’s equal parts role-play and rolling dice. Taverns and tussles. Mysteries and monsters. One-shots and ongoing sagas. And, of course, dungeons and dragons. But the stakes can be high. The combat can be deadly. And the stories can be epic. New players and veterans welcome. I sometimes do voices and accents, but, fair warning, I am not an actor. I often say to my players, I know how big the sandbox is, how deep the sand is, and what the major toys in it are, but you're the ones playing in it. So, it’s my sandbox but it’s your story. I'm never too precious with my plot points because what you bring to the table is just as important as what I had prepared. To switch metaphors, I approach the game as narrative jazz. As dungeon master, I start the bass line and everyone gets to riff on it. Where my players take me is often interesting and unexpected, and that’s the fun for me. That's the goal, to have fun. So, let's have some fun.
