About me

I have been playing D&D for over 20 years. I started with AD&D 2nd Edition, played 3rd, 3.5, 4, and now using 5th Edition. I enjoy the cooperative story woven between the players and DM. I am currently hosting three weekly games online as well as one shots and events. I am also a paraeducator running after school programs for two school districts. Offering education based D&D for students K-8th and a standard D&D experience focusing on storytelling for students in 9th-12th grade. "The essence of a role-playing game is that it is a group, cooperative experience. There is no winning or losing, but rather the value is in the experience of imagining yourself as a character in whatever genre you’re involved in, whether it’s a fantasy game, the Wild West, secret agents or whatever else. You get to sort of vicariously experience those things." - Gary Gygax The growing number of fans has exploded recently, with an increase in availability of online tools and the connectivity of the internet. Allowing me to continue to offer these games. I have a Legendary Bundle from DNDbeyond.com as well as physical copies of the books.


GM style

I like to insure an good mix of RP and tactical combat. I am not great at voices but I try to give each NPC a personality. By using in depth back storys for PC and NPC I create a larger world behind the scenes to flush out the story.
