I grew up in Latrobe, Pennsylvania and graduated from Derry Area High School in 2001. I majored in English Literature and minored in History at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio, where I founded the Wittenberg Role-Playing Guild: Southwest Ohio's premier group for role-playing, board, and card games. I then attended Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana, where I attained my Master of Arts in Teaching.
I've been a gamer since 6th grade, when my cousin Jason helped me roll up my first character: a Heroes Unlimited cyborg. Since then, I've run countless games all across the Ohio Valley in all sorts of genres and systems.
In addition to running Blackfall Press, I am an active freelance editor and writer for numerous companies, including the following:
- GameWick Games (WEGS Old Skool, Pittsburgh 68, WEGS Ultimate Dungeon Party)
- Cubicle 7 Entertainment (The Laundry Files: The Mythos Dossiers, Cultists Under the Bed)
- Gun Metal Games (Interface Zero 2.0)
- Myrmidon Design Bureau (forthcoming Zombie game)
I live in Englewood, Ohio with my wife Jules and my two cats, Tikka and Q.
