About me

Hiya! I'm (he/him) an amateur writer, actor, and student in the far-off land of Alberta, Canada. I'm also a longtime Game Master with over eight years of experience running D&D, Pathfinder, Starfinder, Powered by the Apocalypse games, what have you. I've introduced countless people to the hobby and hope to bring new experiences to veteran players as well! A tabletop roleplaying-game is a beautiful exercise in storytelling. It challenges you to relinquish control of your ideas, share them with others, and collaborate on creating something entertaining. I believe the game runs best when I don't know what's going to happen next, you don't know what's going to happen next, and we're all just frantic with excitement about the next roll of the dice.

GM style

I'm into this for the storytelling aspect first and foremost. I love character voices, plot twists, and handing over some control of the narrative to players. Most importantly, I'm always the biggest fan of the player characters - this is their story, after all. I will listen to your interests, mold the story so that it places your characters first and foremost, and enjoy playing out the consequences. That doesn't mean that my games are easy! I can vary the tone based on the system, from the breathless excitement of superpowered fantasy to the grim misery of a dark and gritty setting. I've had players cry at the death of a beloved NPC and curse me for a sudden plot twist that challenged their understandings of a setting. I want to make some badass memories. As for gameplay, I have my fun when it comes to more tactically-oriented systems. There's artistry in creating mechanically interesting and complex engagements - I'm a less is more kind of guy. Rather than 4-6 fights in a session, expect 1 or 2 . . . but those fights will be hefty, dramatic, and mean something to the overall game.
