I come to World Anvil as a Dungeon Master of Dungeons and Dragons 5e homebrew games and an occasional player, based in Victoria, Australia.

I enjoy dreaming up strange worlds and stories that are further enhanced through the creativity and experiences we encounter in game. However, I will note that my writing skills are purely hobbyist and that of someone who's learned through reading, not through education. (Translation: Please be kind)

I love illustrating my own maps, characters, items and more, to help create the desired atmosphere in game, and give my players a memorable experience.

Although I haven't touched them in quite some time, I also enjoy painting miniatures and sculpting items that add to the ambience of our gaming table.

Professionally, I manage workplace health and safety across a number of sites, including manufacturing, warehousing, offices and retail environments.

Favorite Writers

While I enjoy a range of genres and writing styles, my favourite writer is by far Terry Pratchett.

His cheeky humour and frequent play on words is genius.

My first ever home brew Dungeons and Dragons game was heavily inspired by the Discworld series, giving me a great starting point and plenty of material to throw in at a whim.
