About Me

I am a writer and game designer with over 9 years of experience in the tabletop game industry. After graduating with a J.D. from Albany Law School, I moved to Minneapolis to pursue my dream of game design with Fantasy Flight Games.

I am a storyteller at heart. I enjoy dreaming of new worlds, creating interesting characters, and weaving dynamic tales. My specialty is creating games and scenarios that establish an emotional resonance with players. Pangs of fear, shock and awe, the thrill of victory: these are games that will make you think, feel, and remember the experience for years to come.
