Extra Life 2019

This is the second year I'm pledging to play games and raise funds for kids at my local children's hospital.

Here's how it works

  • Extra Life is a gaming and DIY fundraising platform supporting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

  • I'm joining thousands of gamers! I'm playing games and raising funds from friends like you in two Dungeons & Dragons live streams during Halloween weekend at GameHoleCon 2019.

  • 100% of the donations go to my local children's hospital. 

Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. Simply click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to help.

How I'm Upping My Game

Last year was the first time I played D&D live! For this year's events, I will be in full costume for the Guiding Light Streaming Game for Extra Life with Satine Phoenix and have obtained a fabulous gnome hat (and new forest friend!) for the D&D Live event with Mike Mearls. For times and dates, please visit my GameHole Con 2019 schedule.

This Year's D&D Characters

This year, I'll be filling the shoes of two unique D&D characters. The first character is a brand new concept the fabulous Annie Chen ( helped me devise. I'll be playing a wild elven sorceress who's under the mistaken impression she's been blessed by the fae. Sporting a single horn, Moondust "Dustie" Sylvanwood thinks she's a 4,000-year-old magical unicorn. Unfortunately for Dustie, her power comes from an infernal source--a mysterious demon who she has yet to encounter. Her past shrouded in mystery, Dustie is convinced her magic is destined to help her party members be the heroes they were meant to be.

The second character debuted last year. I'll be stepping back into the role of A. Happy "Hap" Gnome with a new forest friend--a hedgehog named Maze! The hedge, Maze, and Hap are bound to embark on hilarious adventures with a new crew!
