Who Am I?

Hi! I’m Don, a hard-working writer and professional game master with a deep love for telling meaningful stories that explore human complexities in epic settings. I’m also a lifelong professional stage actor and playwright, and I bring my years of experience and passion for immersive storytelling to my tables when I run a game!

As a game designer and game master, I’ve worked for a lot of amazing, inclusive publishers and live-streaming communities, including: Modiphius, Petersen Games, Mage Hand Press, DM’s Guild, Rematch Studios, Tales from the Grim, EncounterRoleplay, and many others. You can find a lot of my current projects by following me on Twitter or visiting my Linktree.

If you'd like to see how I run a game, I am currently the Dungeon Master for the popular Dragonlance D&D5e actual play series, May Black Roses Bloom!

How Can You Get Involved?

I’d love for you to join my Patreon community. My patrons support my ongoing work on roleplaying games and multi-media projects. They participate in conversations to help influence my design work, gain early and exclusive access to original adventures, awesome new Dungeons & Dragons supplements -- and even play in my private TRPG campaigns, where I act as Game Master!

I thrive on inclusivity. I believe that collaborating with folks who have different life experiences than I do can only make my games better and more robust. Patreon makes it possible for me to keep collaborating with a lot of incredibly talented people from all around the world. My goal is to become a full-time professional Game Master and adventure writer -- and more importantly, I want to be the best GM and adventure writer that I can possibly be.

With your help, I know that I can make that happen. Thank you for being here, and for being so supportive of good stories! If you have any questions, you can reach out to me with a private message here on Patreon.
