About me

As an experienced actor, director, storyteller and game master, I love the chance to craft unique experiences for my players, no matter what game we play. When we play, we create original situations and I value player expression and player choice in collaborative story telling. I love teaching games to new players of all ages. I've run games for children as young as 6 years of age and can adjust content on the fly for the comfort and fun of players. I truly love gaming with diverse groups and want roleplaying to be available to all. Everyone is welcome at my table. Let's make something great. Let's adventure together!


GM style

I love role play and the act of creating a story together. I love bringing the world to life for my players through voices, descriptions, and honoring player agency. I want you to feel like a hero. I want you to have epic moments and nail bitingly tense battles. I want you to have a blast. I want you help you to allow yourself to be creative. I want you to reclaim that from a world of passivity and consuming the stories others made. I also like a good laugh and will reward you cracking me up. I can do theatre of the mind, or virtual tabletops. I would rather keep focus on narrative than play the opposition to the eternal grind of "murder hobo" style play. If you need that relationship with a Game Master, our styles will not match. If rule of cool, narrative forward play sounds good to you, then I am happy to engage with you in making that happen. I tailor my style to the group and I can play nice, or hardball, depending on what will give you, the player, a good time at the table. I trust you to give me some narrative hooks to work with and I make use of them. I have run a lot of 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons. I'm glad that it has helped the hobby grow but, there is more to Role Playing Games than D&D 5th and I am not starting new campaigns in that system. If you are willing to go off the beaten path, I have some wonderful games to offer which are really worth your attention. Let's build great stories together.
