I’m a freelancing RPG enthusiast that’s always looking for exciting collaborators. To check out my varied interests please have a look at my blog: toomuchcontent.net.
Gamer. Dad. Writer. Professional Actor (inactive but I’ve still got my SAG card). I’ve lived in just about every region of the US, so I feel like I’ve learned to get along with almost everyone. Currently residing in the East Bay (outside of Oakland, CA). I split my time between chasing my healthy young son around, writing & blogging and trying to keep our household running. I’ve already made a number of great friendships in the area, and have fallen in with more than one gamer who enjoys exploring all sorts of systems. I love where we live; I finally feel like I’ve made it to a place I’m happy to call home.
For my Patreon backers, look for the Big Damn Hero Meta-game episode. I’ll cover my early thoughts about Champions Now, prep work, and how it all pannned out along with some extra commentary from Charles.
