About me

"I like to think of the relationship between player and DM like the songwriting relationship in my band. Except my players are probably better at carrying a tune." "You're the Chosen One, finally bringing together the worlds of jock and nerd!" My name is MJ, and I'm everything your parents warned you about: a horror writer, an underground rock guitarist, and a Philadelphia sports superfan. I've worked in almost every creative pursuit, from music to comic book writing, technical theatre to stand-up comedy, and I seek to bring all of those arts into my DM practice. My goal as a game master is to immerse my players in a fantasy world where it feels like their choices truly matter. I accomplish this through high-quality maps, ambient sound, voice acting, and a diligent integration of character backstory into my campaigns. I expect an adherence to the rules, which includes the rule of cool, and I'll always allow some sprinkles of flavor into character design. Custom games, stories, and worlds are all available by private commission. I offer games in a wide variety of systems, including D&D 5e, Pathfinder 2e, Starfinder, Kids on Bikes, Powered by the Apocalypse, and Forged in the Dark.
