I have been immersed in the joy of stories and RPGs for over 30 years now. I've played and run in many systems including D&D, Amazing Tales, Fate, Rifts, World of Darkness, Star Wars, Savage Worlds, Dungeon Crawl Classics, Numinera, Cypher System, and many others. My greatest love is for D&D, and I have been blessed to share amazing experiences with people from all walks of life and styles of play. From one-shots and conventions to a 10-year-long campaign with my best friend.

As an educator of middle and high school students, I have worked with dozens of new players of every age from 5 to 65 and have also had the honor of running for many long-time players as well.

Through the years, I've found that every person's love for RPGs comes from their own place—from telling a good story to character development, camaraderie and friendship, wonder, overcoming challenges, beating the snot out of the bad guys, or even just the "pizza and beer." There's something for everyone's tastes and desires, and I thoroughly enjoy them all.

Let's see where our journey takes us next!
