Please, don’t ever hesitate to Private Message me if you want to know what kind of a Narrator or Player I am or if anything stands out about my narration/play history that would inhibit your enthusiasm about storytelling with me. I’m always open to discussing worries and, perhaps more so, excitement or enthusiasm!

Note: I am not ironclad in the Play Preferences that show on my profile and will adjust depending on the interest and styles of those participating with me.
