About me

Well hello there, Stranger! I started playing RPGs in the back of the Gamer’s Haven at the mall when I was 12, and I’ve never looked back. My one true love is Apocalypse World, and I’ve partaken in all manner of hacks and spin-offs. I love the way it empowers players to create and affect their world. We create the story together by making bold choices and following them through to their logical conclusion, ending up somewhere we never expected. I believe in using safety tools, responding to player feedback, and creating a positive, inclusive game environment. I do not tolerate bigotry, I encourage and reward player engagement, and I own up to my mistakes. If you'd like to know more about me, feel free to check out my blog: If you want to “win,” if you want to outsmart the mechanics, or you love crunch above all else, then maybe I’m not the GM for you. But if you want to create and discover a world that none of us could have created alone, if you want to meet characters with texture and life and form deep and surprising relationships with them, and if you’re delighted by custom drawings and ephemera in my sketchy marker-on-notebook paper style, then let’s do it. Let’s play to find out what happens.

GM style

I'm a roleplayer who loves collaborative storytelling and world-building, hand-creating journals and ephemera, and occasionally fiddling with custom mechanics. My style is semi-improvisational; I love building on what the players bring to the table.
