About

I joined the West End Games team as an editor in 1994. Shortly thereafter, I became an editor for the AD&D core team at TSR, Inc., then made the move to Seattle to work with Wizards of the Coast. Since then, I have been an editor on AD&D, Dragonlance, Ravenloft, and D&D (various editions) projects. I have also spent some time as a managing producer for several Wizards of the Coast trading card game websites, including the Pok√©mon Trading Card Game. When I’m not spending my working hours wrangling text for games and marketing projects, I’m working on websites for various clients and companies. Additionally, I never stand still: I am constantly learning new things, and I thrive in a collaborative environment that allows me to change roles as needs change.
