About me

I am a lifelong crafter. Whether it's writing youth program curriculum, sewing clothes or building this website, I love being able to tinker with things and say "I made this!"

I'm excited to dedicate my extensive professional experience in project and team management and my technical skills to a company who's mission I really believe in.

You may also connect and communicate with your friends and party up so that everyone can witness the dice rolls that will unfold the story in their legendary campaign.
