About me

So, you want to dive into a magical world made of words? Let me help you create your adventure! I am a voice coach/singing instructor by day (when there isn't a worldwide pandemic) and am excited to get to use my vocal expertise in the RPG world. I am most familiar with D&D 5E but enjoy learning new platforms. While we may not be able to get together and perform in person, online gaming is a fantastic venue for those of us who want to be social while distancing. I believe that collaborative storytelling through role playing games is a perfect creative outlet for anyone who wants to be able to create and imagine in a safe and encouraging space! I enjoy helping adventurers "share the spotlight" so everyone in the group gets a chance to shine, and I expect my players to keep their "Plays Well With Others" badge on at all times. ;-) At my table, we might be strangers, but we are never enemies. <3 Let's StartPlaying, and see where this adventure takes us!


GM style

I am a musician and teacher, so performing and storytelling are what I do best and I can and will quickly adapt to what you need in our adventures. I am happy to teach new players "the rules" (though they're more like guidelines a lot of the time...) and introduce them to the world of D&D. I think a healthy balance of role playing, combat, and lore make for a great session, and while I am a rule follower, I don't think TPKs are super fun, so... just know that I'm still rooting for you while my monsters and NPCs try to destroy you. ;-) Even though I'm fairly new to the professional GM world, I enjoy doing my research and building up to big reveals in the storyline while helping players submerse themselves in the world we are building together. When you are so excited and intrigued that you can't stop talking about the game OUTSIDE of the game, I'll know I've done a great job. Oh, and I am excellent at keeping secrets, so... no spoilers here! I prefer to run 5e published modules and offer the following Campaigns/Settings : - Curse of Strahd - Explorer's Guide To Wildemount - Humblewood - Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden - Lost Mine of Phandelver - Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos - Tyranny of Dragons - Hoard of the Dragon Queen / Rise of Tiamat - Waterdeep - Dragon Heist / Dungeon of the Mad Mage - Wild Beyond The Witchlight Additionally, these one-shots (single session stories) are an absolute blast: - Gollythank (holiday themed) - Rick & Morty: Lost Dungeon of Rickedness - Wild Sheep Chase - Xanathar's Guide to Everything: Underworld Speculation To request your adventure, simply click the "Contact GM" or "Book this GM" button under my profile picture so we can *start playing!*
