Hi, I’m Daniel!

I design tabletop roleplaying games, produce podcasts, conduct developmental edits of games, and do my best to make the gaming community a more inclusive space. You might know me from the Asians Represent! and  Curiosity in Focus podcasts, my editorials for GnomeStew, or my design work (Zany Zoo, Wolf of the South, and Ross Rifles) through Dundas West Games. I am one of the co-founders of Level Up Gaming, a Toronto-based organization that provides adults with autism and other disabilities opportunities to develop their social skills through group gaming experiences. I also work in the world of STEAM and am a certified Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE), MIE Trainer, and Minecraft Education Certified Trainer.

I possesses extensive experience in the creative direction and implementation of digital projects from pre-production through to post-production. My anthropological background makes me highly capable of better understanding the behaviour of your audience, community trends, digital literacy, and the complex interplay between technology, society, and culture. I also possess extensive experience in the development and execution of alternative educational programming using tabletop gaming. From 2011-2019, I ran the Royal Ontario Museum's highly successful Dungeons & Dragons program and consulted in the development of a program using the Dungeon World system at the Aga Khan Museum between 2015 and 2016.
