About me

Graham is an actor and writer running Dungeons & Dragons games for parties, local stores, and dedicated home groups. He loves to bring the show to you, but also frequently uses Roll20 and Discord to project his astral form to game nights across the world. You’ll see right away that Graham’s style as a Dungeon Master is dynamic, theatrical, and highly imaginative. As a professional improviser, he infuses his games with a sense of wonder, and embraces the creativity of his players above all else. For 20 years, Graham has been an engaged member of the D&D community, running games at conventions and publishing content through Kickstarter and DriveThruRPG. He is also an active member of the Herald’s Guild at Baldman Games, running D&D for the most high-profile hobby events in the world, such as Gen Con, D&D Celebration, Origins Game Fair, SHUX, and PAX. Safety and accessibility are necessary for games like this. You can trust that Graham will do everything in his power to preserve your comfort and consent at game-time.


GM style

As a skilled storyteller, Graham delights in developing characters and bantering with players. He has a writer’s sense of pace and scope with an actor’s instinct for drama. Graham uses both “theater of the mind” and elaborate maps and terrain. Each story and scene calls for something different. He loves to bring a big set piece or load up a gorgeous tactical map on Roll20. But these tools never get in the way of a good game. Whether it’s horror, an epic quest, or a fanciful romp, you will be the center of a marvelous story!
