The Mysterious Man in Black
another role-playing murder mystery party game
Freewell, Nevada. The Fourth of July, 1957.
Folks in Freewell aren’t too fond of newcomers, and something about this man— with his black suit and five o’clock shadow— strikes the eight diner patrons as odd.
He orders nothing but black coffee. He’s waiting for someone.
Or was someone waiting for him?
Finished and currently prepping for play-testing!
An Evening at the Villa Diodati
yet another role-playing murder mystery party game
1816, the “year without a summer.”
While the storms rage outside, dampening the June air, the greatest minds of the Romantic era are shut away in the isolated Villa Diodati, at the edge of Lake Geneva, nestled deep in the Swiss Alps.
As minds grow restless and tempers flare, Lord Byron proposes a competition: write the most frightening ghost story of all time. Everyone leaps at the task, giving birth to Frankenstein and The Vampyre, but in the hidden corners of the villa, something much more sinister awakes….
Inspired by a true story, I’m in the early stages of mapping this one out!
handmade personal zine
In the summer of 2019, just a few months after my grandfather’s death, I unpacked his library. Books were the only thing we had in common and so I wrote a perzine to process the experience.
What unfolded was a meditation on the process of collecting and keeping… and what it all means when someone has to sift through our things after we’re gone.
Museum of the Western World
handmade art zine
A parody zine of souvenir museum guides, containing descriptions of the monuments contained within the “Suburban Galleries,” of the Museum of the Western World, dedicated to the famed Late Capitalist era. Leave reason at the coat check!
Created in collaboration with Amy Rajala.

I am currently inventorying all the old zines projects I’ve worked on over the years and looking to making them available through an Etsy shop. Once up and running, I’ll have a live link ready to go!
