About me

🦎 28, He/Him 🦎 I am a full-time game master with a decade of experience doing theatrical improvisation and stand-up comedy. I run TOTAL IMPROV D&D, a zany, improvised one-shot theatre show in downtown Montreal. I also run tabletop games on a volunteer basis for queer and neurodivergent young adults. If you enjoy a bit of humour and a focus on growing your character and the world around your character, we're going to be like two peas in a pod. Or two goblins in a cave. Or two owls on a branch. Or two bananas in one peel - which is quite rare, but can happen.

GM style

I'm a GM who likes a good story told. That means a good mix of: roleplaying to give meaning, combat/encounters to give stakes, and a bit of lore and worldbuilding to give a sense of verisimilitude. As characters (and their players!) grow, the world grows with them. What's most important to me in that regard is getting together a healthy band of players. I want to make sure every player is on board to play as a team and share in the glory of adventure! For that reason I take my time to speak to every potential player to make sure they're a good fit and ready to be inclusive. I like to build interesting and diverse encounters, and to offer intriguing (and often silly) roleplaying moments. My strengths are certainly my skills at improvising, voice acting, and pacing. At higher levels I anticipate players tracking their active effects and notifying me of the minutiae of rulings. I am no Adventurer's League referee. But that style of play is not what the games I run are made to facilitate.
