About me

Hi I'm William! I am many things, but most simply I am a giant, optimist, nerd, and lover of stories. I love the way tabletop games are such a unique opportunity for creative storytelling. My goal is to create a fleshed out world that players can fully interact with, and the space to embody and evolve their characters. Pulling from a strong improv and theater background, I try and fill the world we play in with life, for anything from a goofy romp to a dark epic. Flexibility, empathy, and creativity are my driving forces and I hope we can tell awesome stories together. I am excited to hear your ideas and would love to try to make your perfect game, so feel free to message me if you have a custom game you would like me to run.


GM style

I am a flexible GM. I build worlds and then go with the flow within them. I'm comfortable being a by-the-book wargamer or a rules-loose role-player; whatever the group needs I enjoy deeply. I am always happy to do character voices and anything else that helps build out a world and flush out a story with the players at the center. No one genre or style is my favorite, though my go-to when I throw a one-shot together with friends is a Forgotten-Realms-adjacent fantasy world with bits aplenty. I am a game designer by trade and collaborative worldbuilding is my favorite thing about a good TTRPG - no matter the size of a universe, I always try to make it deep enough to dive in.
