About me

I've been running games since the early 90s. I have a pro-player mentality, which means I want your characters to succeed with their goals provided the dice gods see fit to allow them. I have run games for people aged 8-65, modules, campaigns, and my favorite homebrewed adventures. I love new players, and watching the sense of wonder and freedom light up the faces of people who may have forgotten how to play with their imagination. I am most certainly willing to teach new players the proverbial ropes, or grind through a tough tactical challenge for experienced players. I've run many homebrew campaigns, pre written campaigns, and so many one-shot adventures over the years it would be tough to put a number on it. I am not a professional voice actor, but I do change my voice for different NPCs. I am not a professional game designer, but, I do write my own adventures, hombrew settings, monsters, all kinds of oddball magic items. I run a fun game, with serious moments, quirky NPCs and serious laughs. Let's have some fun together rolling dice and creating memories for you and your friends.

GM style

I like to run a balanced D&D game with the three pillars of gameplay (roleplay, exploration, combat) getting fair screentime. I run a fun game, with laughter being encouraged for the creative and silly ways people solve problems. Let the dice decide if your plans work out, the chaos of the roll creates tension and hilarity. I am happy to teach new players, run custom campaigns or one-shot adventures.
