About me

As a passionate and enthusiastic Dungeon Master, I bring a unique energy to my tabletop games. My dynamic storytelling style creates a cinematic experience for players, filled with high-stakes moments and humor. My ADHD adds to my ability to keep the conversation flowing and ensure that every player has a chance to shine. With 6 and a half years of experience and almost 100 different players at my table, I have a wealth of knowledge and a proven track record of creating memorable and enjoyable gaming experiences. I welcome players of all levels, including newbies and experienced DMs looking for a change of pace. My goal is to create a safe and inclusive table space where everyone feels welcome. In addition to the in-game experience, I also offer a supportive community through a Discord channel where players can continue to connect and share their experiences. As a loving parent and dedicated teacher, I have a passion for helping others learn and grow their love for D&D. I believe that the tabletop is a place for players to get emotionally invested and tell stories together. As your Dungeon Master, my primary goal is to ensure that you have a memorable and enjoyable time. So, let's roll some dice and embark on an epic journey together. Prepare your dice!
