About me

I've been playing games since 2005 and running games since 2010. I've played a good sampling of games and I've GMed D&D 3.5 and 5e, Numenera, Cypher System, Mouse Guard, Masks, and more. I run a podcast with some friends (DnD RAW) and used to teach students (ages 8-17) how to play and run their own games of D&D (running and playing basics, table etiquette, safety tools, and table management). I lean into the rule of cool and opt for a good time! If we're running a one shot I'm hoping to give you a mix of a taste of the rules, a sense of the setting, and a whole lot of fun!

GM style

I love roleplaying and letting folks explore the maps, characters, and setting. I lean towards the rule of cool so it's almost never a no, but often a yes, but or yes, and. I aim to help folks understand the rules a bit, get a taste of the setting, and have a good time!
