I'll be updating this blog once a week, every Wednesday this year. They will be short and succinct, and no one will read them, but that's fine. I just really want to start updating this thing.

I've removed all previous posts, as I'd like these 53 to stand alone.

I don't have much to say right now, but next week's post will be about Story Game, and the changes made to it. (I've been reworking Story Game from scratch, in case you haven't heard!)

Hi there!
I am a web developer from Platteville Wi, doing freelance contract work and a whole lot of side projects. I spend my free time with my boardgame-making hobby and talking about Star Wars. Did you know that John Boyega saves lives?

On Twitter:

Just backed it! This was one of the more memorable Protospiel games that I've played. Been looking forward to this……

Website Development Résumé

Current Web Projects

Story Game

Story Game is an online app that lets you create stories with your friends (or play anonymously) in real time.

I wrote the code, designed the site, and did pretty much everything there. I hope for it to be completely finished sometime this year, but there's currently no schedule.

The Platteville Gaming Association

The Platteville Gaming Association needed a way to easily organize their many different games sessions for Plattecon, so I worked with them to create a scheduling system full of useful options. Then I redesigned their website. This is ongoing!

Check out the Plattecon gaming convention, from March 4th to 6th in 2016 at UW Platteville, Wisconsin.

Boardgame/RPG Projects

Shark Roulette

You've all been trapped in a whirlpool with a ravenous shark! Rotate tiles to change the current and get the shark to eat your friends instead of you...


A 3-minute family-friendly party game where players work together to create ridiculous stories in the form of conspiracies.

Chocolate Box

An RPG system with the world's only 3d paper mache character sheet.

Last Draw

A card game where you can mix-and-match pre-built magical characters and weapons to fight with them. The unique timeline system makes this a downtime-free game.
