About me

🎶 Hello adventurers! Stay a while and listen as we embark on a fantastic journey! 🎶 You can call me Mashby. I've been playing Dungeons & Dragons since 2e when I was a teenager. My favorite system was definitely 3.5e and my longest running game has been in 5e. Previously I've worked as an animator and production designer, and now I am an experience designer specializing in gamified learning. New players and folx with marginalized identities will find a safe space at my table, for it is my firm belief that all people deserve to create and have their stories heard. Collaborative storytelling is the portal through which we can explore the deepest dungeons and the furthest stars together.

GM style

I'm a storyteller first, even if that's the story of a crunchy tactical apocalypse! The second hat I wear is of the facilitator, a Willy Wonka type opening worlds and dimensions for the joy and engagement of my players. Third is adaptability; essential given all the amazing adventures that await, which is why I can lead any group through an amazing experience independent of game system or platform. All those details are up for grabs.
