I approach tabletop RPGs as cooperative storytelling. Usually the game master, I tend to design elaborate world settings for my players to frolic in, and I love improvisational conversation scenes. The rare times I get to run a player character, I prefer to play grumpy old people and characters with unusual superstitions.

SYSTEMS: Currently diving into fate-core, and very excited about it. I'm most experienced in running dnd-4e and dnd-3.5e, but moved away from them recently. I've also dabbled in roll-for-shoes, dogs-in-the-vineyard, my-life-with-master, Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple, and Stargate SG-1, among others.
I'm experimenting with game design, including a FAE hack about holy werewolves and a unique system inspired by My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
CURRENT GAMES: Running a series of fate-core mini-campaigns with a single player, including:
- A game set in low-fantasy Ancient Egypt, about a subsistence hunter turned werecat priest of Bastet.
- A game set in The City in the Thief video game franchise. I play a homeless shaman ex-P.I, and the player in the Egypt game is the GM.
- A Core-modified dresden-files game about a trickster changeling in a South Carolina college town where kids' toys are coming to life.
- Hoping to run a Core version of SG-1 in which my single player controlling a whole SG team, without asking him to handle four different character sheets.
CHARACTER NOTE: Never short on Opinions and overambitious Ideas.
