About

What I Do


Writing

I do more than cover events and dish out takes. I've published long form journalism, criticism, and more for clients that include Vice, ZEAL, Waypoint, Storycade, and Leaving Mundania.

Design

I've written setting material and developed interactive systems both independently and in some pretty awesome teams, like Bully Pulpit Games, Burning Wheel HQ, Thorny Games, and more!

Teaching

I love to share my passions. Through my presentations and workshops, I'll help you and your team make playful connections, open up creative possibilities, and probably burst out laughing.

Backstory




For over three years, I conducted biweekly interviews with some of the most fascinating folks in roleplaying: artists, scholars, community organizers and more.

I've been called "The Terry Gross of RPGs" and I wear that badge with pride.
