About me

You want to try a new RPG system and have someone TEACH you the rules? You want a GM that roleplays and gets heavily into your character stories? You have absolutely come to the right place. I've been playing RPGs for over a decade now and these games are my greatest passion. I believe these games have a magic, cathartic escapism that no movie, game or book can provide, and I run them because I love sharing that catharsis with others; I love helping people have great adventures and tell memorable stories. I have a background in Theater and I always strive to bring my performing experience to the games I run. As a GM I offer you: -Plot where Player Characters matter: I understand the game belongs to the players just as much as me, and I make sure my player characters feel like their character's personal story gets attention. -FUN over RULES: I do care about the rules being accurate, but I love bending rules to fit the narrative; I care about rules, but I care so much more about telling a cool story and having a fun game. -Acceptance of ALL POC/genders/sexualities: It's kind of sad to me that this has to be specified in this day and age, but I guess it's worth mentioning: my games are open to all genders, sexualities and people of color and have a zero-tolerance policy for bigotry.


GM style

I definitely cater more to roleplayers and storytellers, and prioritize narrative over mechanics. I care about rule accuracy, but care more about the player's overall EXPERIENCE. I am a trained actor with a degree in Theater who's spent years performing on-screen and on-stage. It's not just about "doing a voice" and necessarily "acting out the character"; I commit to my NPCs motivations and goals and try to write/portray as realistic, engaging characters to interact with as I can who will pursue their own agendas. I search for cool story beats and moments that may resonate with the players. I try to keep the world breathing and alive around them. However I also have FUN with my characters, and do also engage in shameless silliness, weird personalities and voices. I encourage you to do so as well! I'm all about making sure players get to have their fun, dramatic or "badass" moments, by their standards!
