About me

I’m an actor and writer who’s spent 15 years running Dungeons & Dragons games at events, local stores, and for groups around the world via astral projection. You’ll see right away that my style is dynamic, theatrical, and imaginative. As a professional improviser, I infuse my games with a sense of wonder, and embrace the creativity of the players above all else. In addition to running D&D with Baldman Games at the most high-profile hobby events (Gen Con, D&D Celebration, Origins Game Fair, SHUX, PAX, and more), I’ve published content through Kickstarter and DriveThruRPG and am the Content Manager for Ghostlight RPGs, producing live-streamed games for charity. I highly prioritize safety and accessibility. I’ll do everything in my power to preserve your comfort and consent at game time.

GM style

As a professional improviser, responding to players’ creativity brings me joy. I like to think that I have a writer’s sense of pace with an actor’s instinct for developing characters. My games use both “theater of the mind” and elaborate maps. Each story and scene calls for something different, but with all of them, I emphasize visual and verbal aids, whether that’s a simple handout or a gorgeous piece of terrain. These kinds of tools are all about enhancing and supporting the game, not getting in the way of fun. Whether it’s horror, an epic quest, or a fanciful romp, you will be the center of our marvelous story!
