About me

I've been running role-playing games since high school. Whether it was for a tight clique of friends or a group of disparate individuals across the world, I have tried to bring people together through my work. Creating and running games is a calling, an art form, and a passion. So often we are trapped by circumstances in real life. I feel like games should be an opportunity for people to feel important. I dislike railroaded plots because they deny the players the one thing that matters most: agency. You might be playing a street-level thug or a mighty lord of a kingdom, but you will always be the one making the decisions. Settings of special interest: Star Wars! Golden age of pirates. Warhammer 40 000. Zombie apocalypse. Bronze-age Superheroes. Feminist, LGBT ally, liberal. Dad. Shodan of shotokan karate. Nurse.


GM style

I intend to run three different campaign settings on this site: Urban Shadows, set in New York City; Warhammer 40 000, set in the Gilead System; and Star Wars, set during the Rebellion. I spent a lot of time in university studying literature. I use that education to weave themes throughout the story. Every encounter adds to the story! I like to keep a light tone and encourage players to be imaginative. There's nothing I like better than being surprised by the players. I do some of my own sketches of characters, locations, and vehicles. I like to try to do character voices. Ask to hear my Australian accent! You are the stars of the story, not me. The player characters are always at the center of the plot and action.
