About me

Hello, gamers! They call me 'Doc.' With four decades of gamemastering under my belt, I've had the pleasure of exploring over 200 different role-playing systems—many of which span multiple editions and encompass a wide array of genres and sub-genres. My background is rich in the dramatic arts, including nearly 40 years in drama training, 20 years performing in improvisational comedy, and over 8 years in voice acting. As a Game Master, my approach is player-character-driven storytelling, whether I'm weaving through a pre-written saga or crafting something entirely new. I strive to create entertaining and memorable interactions, develop engaging NPCs, formidable monsters, and villains that you love to hate. I'm excited to continue broadening the spectrum of games we dive into and to enhance your gaming experiences!

GM style

It's called a game for a reason—it better be fun! My guiding principle has always been to prioritize the player experience. Crafting a compelling narrative is crucial, but ensuring that players feel their characters are the central figures driving the story is paramount. By embracing a "yes, and" mentality to player contributions, I allow for adventures to unfold in ways that can be vastly different from anything pre-published or initially planned. For me, that unpredictability is a key element of the fun! When you join me at the virtual table, expect a lively mix of character voices, edge-of-your-seat action, playful engagement with tropes, and an unwavering commitment to keeping players involved and excited!
