HEY THERE! I'M MATT.
For every project — big or small — I provide the same professional level of thoroughness, consistency, and finesse.
I'm an ENnie award-winning editor, writer, and game designer hailing from the Pacific Northwest. My credits include work with Wizards of the Coast, Fantasy Flight Games, Green Ronin, Chaosium, and Microsoft Studios, among others. In addition to those larger publishers, I've partnered with dozens of small, independent, and solo creators to develop their projects.
WATERDEEP: DUNGEON OF THE MAD MAGE
Roleplaying Game | Wizards of the Coast | 2018
As an editor and proofreader on this multi-level mega-dungeon adventure supplement for the world's oldest fantasy roleplaying game, I scoured the text for quality and cohesion, in addition to lending a designer's eye on encounters, traps, and other mechanical elements crafted by Wizards' design team.
ARKHAM HORROR: THIRD EDITION
Board Game | Fantasy Flight Games | 2018
Arkham Horror: a classic name in board games. I had the privilege of serving as an editor and proofreader on the third edition of the game, working on the rulebook, card assets, and scenarios to ensure quality and consistency in the new, streamlined rules.
Roleplaying Game | Shawn Tomkin | 2020
As a supplement to the ENnie-winning Ironsworn roleplaying game, Delve adds a bounty of rules and options for exploring perilous sites within the flexible, cooperative framework of the core game. In addition to editing duties, I contributed to the product as a co-writer and developer. Delve took home the Silver ENnie for Best Supplement at the 2020 ENnie awards.
A DEAD MAN'S GUIDE TO DRAGONGRIN
Roleplaying Game | Absolute Tabletop | 2020
The largest and most ambitious Absolute Tabletop project to date, A Dead Man's Guide serves as a campaign setting guide, adventure-building toolkit, and source for player options and GM tools. As a writer, designer, editor, and layout artist for the 450-page tome, I spent years on the project.
