About me

Hello there! I'm thrilled to introduce myself as a lifelong game master, freelance RPG designer, and professional GM. With a passion for immersive storytelling, I have had the privilege of working with esteemed names like Wizards of the Coast, Paizo, Ulisses North America, Schwalb Entertainment, Kobold Press, Alligator Alley Entertainment, and Soldier Spy. My experience includes being a member of the D&D Guild Adepts and serving as the community manager for the D&D Adventurers League. One of my biggest passions lies in the captivating world of Dark Sun. As a die-hard fan, I founded the renowned Burnt World of Athas website (, dedicated to exploring and celebrating the unique setting. Hailing from the deserts of Athas, or as some might call it, Phoenix, AZ, I draw inspiration from this sun-scorched realm and infuse it into my games. In addition to my professional endeavors, my personal life is filled with adventure. I reside in Phoenix, AZ, with my wonderful wife, two little adventurers who have already caught the RPG bug, and two beloved animal companions. I am excited to embark on new gaming journeys, create unforgettable stories, and share my love for tabletop roleplaying with you. Together, we'll traverse realms, conquer challenges, and weave tales that will linger in our memories for years to come. Let's embark on an incredible adventure together!

GM style

My GM style is versatile and adaptable to cater to the preferences and needs of my players. I strongly believe in the power of roleplay and enjoy creating vibrant and engaging worlds for players to explore. I encourage character development and provide ample opportunities for players to delve into their characters' backgrounds, motivations, and personal stories. In terms of immersion, I employ a range of techniques, including descriptive narration, atmospheric soundscapes, and engaging NPCs with distinct personalities. I understand the importance of bringing the game world to life and strive to create memorable moments that resonate with the players. When it comes to combat, I'm comfortable with both tactical encounters and narrative-driven conflicts. Whether you prefer crunching numbers and strategizing in intricate battles or engaging in dynamic combat scenes that emphasize storytelling, I can tailor the combat experience to suit your playstyle. In addition, I have extensive knowledge of virtual tabletop platforms such as Fantasy Grounds, ensuring smooth and efficient gameplay online. I'm patient and supportive, especially with players who may be new to the platform, and can guide you through its features seamlessly. Overall, my GM'ing style encompasses a balance of immersive roleplay, engaging storytelling, attention to rules and mechanics, and a collaborative approach that fosters a fun and inclusive gaming environment. I'm committed to providing a memorable and enjoyable experience for all players at the table.
