Hi, I'm Kalen!
As an event manager, software engineer, aspiring designer, persistent writer, and experienced Dungeon Master, I have a wide range of experience that could each create fulfilling and lengthy careers. I have over 15 years of experience in jobs that demand mastery of various crafts. I do not deal in half measures, and put my full effort into my work. Whether it be a game, social campaign, special event, or a simple birthday party, I will see it done with nothing short of excellence.

I'M AN EVENT MANAGER
I've managed organized and executed physical and digital events ranging from ten to twenty thousand attendees. I've coordinated venue changes, negotiated and contracted influencer activations, broke my foot carrying dozens of CRT TVs, and am always looking for the next fun way to engage with the communities around me.
I'M A DESIGNER
I'm a creative, constantly bouncing from project to project. I enjoy crafting thoughtful and engaging experiences for people to enjoy, whether it be through content for an event, a supplemental module in Dungeons and Dragons, or a new and exciting video game.
I'M A NERD
Nerd culture is a vast ocean that can overwhelm and swallow you whole, and I'm the grizzled captain at the wheel of an unsinkable ship, eagerly exploring the endless waters. I play videogames, card games, board games, tabletop RPGs, watch anime, devotedly support Team Liquid in League of Legends esports, and am constantly invested in the ever evolving and growing world of being a geek.
