About me

You want to play some roleplaying games? Me too! Way back in the late 1900s a buddy of mine got a D&D starter box for his birthday and got us all hooked. One of our parents caught wind of it and shut it down (thanks, satanic panic), but hilariously we managed to fast-talk them into letting us play White Wolf games instead and the rest is history. I come to the table with two decades of military experience and a background in formal wargaming, but don't be scared! My number one priority is creating a safe and inclusive environment (especially for marginalized folks), so if you don't know the first thing about tactics then I am happy to help your character become the kind of hero that ignites your imagination. On the other hand if you're hankerin' for a challenge then I am more than happy to make your hero earn their happy ending. I am a fervent believer that there is a table out there for everyone and that the right game can change your life in a real, meaningful way. My goal is to create a game where your choices matter in determining the outcome of the story. Is there a campaign you're itching to try or a system that you've always been curious about? Shoot me a note and let's see if we can't get it off the ground! Most of all I'm just freakin' excited to play!


GM style

I love playing the game to find out what happens. Sure, there are big things moving in the background (because few things are less fun than an empty sandbox), but my goal is for the game to be driven by your characters and the awesome stuff they do at the table. Whether we're doing an open world or a focused plot, I like to keep the momentum flowing and the spotlight on the cool choices that you're making. While I think of myself as a storyteller and a roleplayer first, I can absolutely bring the heat in combat encounters. If you love your characters but still put them into harm’s way for the sake of the story then we’re going to get along just fine!
