I’m a writer and narrative designer! I recently worked on Uncaged Anthology in volume 3 which then branched into other amazing secret projects. I love creating fantasy worlds, especially Non-white, Non-European ones.
I love baking and cooking for other people. I also do photography and filmmaking on the side.
Do you have a current project that you would like us to promote?
Uncaged Anthology and much more D&D 5e projects from Uncaged contributors (all currently in the works so they’re secret).
How did you get into tabletop gaming?
I was in a history of digital games course that talked about Dungeons and Dragons. It got me into playing TTRPGs and never looked back.
What do you love about tabletop games?
Collaborative storytelling. I love creating stories as a group. It’s also a great way for marginalized folks to tell their own stories. Also the fun memories and inside jokes that come out of games.
Have you overcome any obstacles in tabletop gaming?
I never had any gatekeeping instances. However I was often the only Woman/Woman of Color at my table. When first stepping in to these spaces, I often didn’t step up and embrace a full role playing persona. I felt self conscious about how I presented cause I was already worried about being the only woman there.
What would your advice be to women who are interested in tabletop gaming?
It’s all about the group/people you play with. I think having a bad group can very tarnish your view on tabletop games (speaking from experience). Find or bring in people to create a small little community.
In roleplaying games, what kind of characters are you drawn to play?
I’m drawn to characters that have a tragic backstory that are working towards redemption to put it simply. I was drawn to fantasy for the prospect of creating a better hopeful world. I do the same with the characters. It’s very heartwarming to see characters to move forward from their past for the better.
