I’ve been an active RPG gamer for a decade, a LARPer since 2010, and a community organizer for the LARP Community since around 5 seconds later.

Current projects

  • Hulduf√≥lk: The Hidden People, an Urban Fantasy LARP about invisible people who work for Angels and Demons and fight over the future of humanity. My take at a Social PvP LARP with built in reasons for conflict, without immediately murdering each other.
  • Winding Path Initiative, a National LARP Social Club promoting Parlor LARPing, including Blood & Betrayal Chronicle World of Darkness games.
  • Role Initiative Philadelphia, running high quality World of Darkness games in the Philadelphia and New Jersey Area as a WPI Chapter.
  • BNS’s Blood & Betrayal Chronicle. Organizing networked troupe play in the BNS B&B Chronicle.

Previous work

Mind’s Eye Society (August 2010 - September 2017)

Prior to my departure in 2017, I was the primary tech maintainer for the Mind’s Eye Society, starting in 2012 with transitioning from White Wolf control of tools to MES hosting. In 2014 I was elected to the MES Board of Directors, quickly becoming the Tech Advisor to the National Technology Admin, up until my departure in late 2017. During my time in the MES I held positions up and down the MES organizational structure, advised and supported tech pursuits for the organization, addressed community concerns, and spearheaded numerous changes to MES processes and structure.
