Been DMing for 30+ years started when I was 13. I have created whole settings and I regularly make adventures for my players. Also I do art for fun not profit.

I work, sketch, play with my dogs, spend time with family.

Do you have a current project?

Going to be a player in a live stream soon on Encounter RP. https://www.twitch.tv/encounterroleplay

How did you get into tabletop gaming?

I was introduced to it (Marvel Super Heroes [FASERIP]) when I was 8 by my older brother and caught the D&D bug was I was 13 after discovering it in my FLGS I bought the red box starter kit in 85 and was DMing by age 13 in 86.

What do you love about tabletop games?

Creativity, socializing, problem solving, exploration, acting, just all parts of it really.

Have you overcome any obstacles in tabletop gaming?

I’m a Transgender woman so in my early life as a gamer I was discouraged from playing female characters by others at the table. Anything else I just attribute to basic transphobic responses to my existence.

What would your advice be to women who are interested in tabletop gaming?

Find a group and play, the first group you find may not be for, you don’t be afraid to reach out to the community to help find a good table.

What kind of characters are you drawn to play?

Spell Casters (wizards, old school magic users) Ranger is one of my favorite classes. I like half-elves because I can relate to not fitting in anywhere.

Is there a woman in tabletop who you think we should highlight?

Satine Phoenix is just amazing!!
