About me

Hi! I am a musician, writer and arts fundraiser who has been playing Dungeons & Dragons on and off since I was a kid. In the last couple of years I started GM'ing online and have really enjoyed being able to meet people all over the world and setting the stage for them in my favorite game. I see TTRPG's (table top role-playing games) as an art form, and enjoy creating a positive environment for players to really express themselves in the ongoing collaborative narrative. It's a great feeling to be the catalyst for other peoples enjoyment of this great game and I liken it to performing live music. While I'm relatively new to this format, I am absolutely obsessed with bringing the best experience I can to any table I run. I welcome players of any background and experience level with a focus on storytelling, roleplaying, and immersion and most of all providing a little respite from the complexities of the world we are in. I look forward to exploring with you!


GM style

I love to tell stories and watch how players interact with the setting to create their own memorable, vivid and enjoyable experiences. I want them to feel that the time was well spent. I try to really flesh out the NPC's (non player characters), battles, and the rolling narrative of the adventure with good descriptions, quality soundtracks, improvisation and unique and nuanced personas. Role-play is as important in my games as the dungeon diving, but I love a good battle too. I like to use rules for travel, rations, fatigue and other existence mechanics...but try to do it in a way that doesn't take up too much time during the campaign. I want a bit of realism, but it still has to be fun. If players in any particular game don't like some of the mechanics I use, I am open to changing them to meet the needs of my groups. Fun, immersion, and a real sense of place and depth of experience are my top goals as a game master.
