BIO

ABOUT ME

I’m a writer, editor, and game designer living in Tacoma, Washington with my wonderful wife Tealah, two needy cats, and a goofy pit bull named Babs. I love to create, and for 10 years I’ve told stories in newspapers, literary magazines, online publications, video games, and tabletop games.

Do you have a story? I’d love to help you tell it.

Content management at BuddyTV. Narrative design at Microsoft. Proofreading with Fantasy Flight Games. Technical editing at Parametrix. Self-publishing through Absolute Tabletop. I've wandered for nearly a decade, learning all I can, diversifying my skillset, and finding fun through storytelling in every medium.

Mansions of Madness: Second Edition is a cooperative board game that pits players against Lovecraftian horrors beyond human understanding. Each scenario is provides its own challenges and stories.

STONE RIFT

Stone Rift: Thunder Dwarves of Erenoth is a tabletop roleplaying game supplement I wrote, edited, and published through the independent publishing company I co-founded, Absolute Tabletop.

Crimson Dragon is a launch title for the Xbox One. It is a rail shooter, considered the spiritual successor to the classic Panzer Dragoon series.

I also worked with the dialogue and UI text.
