Mission Statement

To experience brave-mad things, hidden by lore, dangerous to come to. To see others, to draw closer, and to discover. That's why we explore.

Explorers is one part creative label and one part game incubator. To elevate the craft's arcane qualities while keeping it accessible, I write reviews, design boutique experiences, and teach creative professionals on how to play.

Teaching

I’ve taught 42 creative advertising professionals tabletop roleplaying games. Like any society of explorers, I made a membership ledger. This is a sample of those players and their characters.
