Guest Appearances

My gaming, mental health, and fundraising expertise have made me popular for both interviews and liveplays. Images have links to the media (when available).

About Me

A counseling professional, I believe games have the power to help us grow, connect, and heal. I use games in my mental health practice. In community gaming spaces, I live this philosophy by building public play spaces for conventions while expanding safe spaces for minority gamers and creatives. I also create roleplaying products expressing the optimism and sense of positive change I try to bring into the world via my counseling practice.In addition to being a Top 10 Professional DM on Start Playing Games, I boast extensive experience in the TTRPG industry. I possess more than 40 cited credits including:
- Writing
- Playtesting
- Editing
- Project management
- Art creation and direction
- Organizing events/play spaces
- Expert interviews
- Streaming performances
- Fundraising
Many of these experiences are centered on Dungeons & Dragons and their related properties. I bring a wealth of experience in other games also.I can help your event build an effective fundraising program, putting the power of D8 Summit Charities - an established and respected 501c3 charity - behind your event.I provide a CV of experiences upon request by potential employers, contractors, or promoters.
