I'm not going to endlessly blather on about where I came from or tell you the idea I had while walking the dog one day, that is the purview of cookery blogs, rather I will tell you that I have been a proGM for a number of years now, both privately, corporate, and at events both live and digital and generally my work has been well received and enjoyed.
I pride myself on offering a solid foundation in both rules and lore in a huge variety of systems, I do have favorites but we all do, and that if I don't know a system I can typically learn it to a good standard within 14 days. GMing is something that I enjoy and try to improve at consistently and I hope what I offer is a reflection of that.
If you have always been searching for that perfect game and it seemingly doesn't exist well you're in luck. I have worked within both the video and traditional games industries for a number of years and so can create a system which can support the style of game you would like to play rather than being forced to run it in a system not remotely designed for it, this does cost extra but that covers the chance to play in your favorite style and world without the weird limitations of decisions made 40 years ago.
Other than that I try to be as accommodating and open minded as possible in my dealings with people and I try to talk to people as adults rather than beating around the bush, please respect this and deal with me in the same way, thank you.
To sum it up in a nutshell "Actions Have Consequences" while you may be the hero of the story and the focal point of the plot, there will be factions and agents around you working to make sure whatever plan you have doesn't come to fruition if they are given the chance. If you are a nuisance in town the watch and the people will be less likely to help you out, if you become a real problem they may help the villains' with information on your whereabouts. Likewise though if you consistently show mercy or honor you may find that the reputation you build makes things easier, or enemies more merciful.
Outside of that I tend to run episodic games in an on-going world, each session should end in a satisfying point, and no combat or involved roleplaying scene will be there "just because", this is not the land of random encounters. My worlds shade towards the dystopian but I have been known to bust out some 4 color pulp when needed so if you have a particular style you're craving I can more than likely work with you to get most of the way there.
Systems wise I know more systems than I can remember the names for as well as creating my own if the need arises, if you're not sure what you want the game to run in but you know the type of plot you want I can work with you, likewise if you have a system you love and want a plot that shows it off to it's best example I can work with you too. I pride myself on being able to create what my customers want and work with them for the best payoff.
Finally if you want help building worlds, marketing yourself, or anything else proGM related shoot me a message I'm always happy to help.
CHOO CHOO! KEEP THAT PLOT MOVING BOYS!
I like to make things happen, I have very VERY limited time to play so when I do I want to get things done and push the plot forwards.
Usually my characters are very good at what they do and typically get built to support the group in some way rather than being lone wolves or flawed.

Times of the Day:
"A very funny and talented GM. Very helpful in bringing your frazzled ramblings of an idea into reality. Knows what he's talking about. And will help you to understand what's happening if you get a bit lost. Give him a go and you will not be disappointed."
"I've been at a couple workshops with Moley as a speaker, and it's always been enlightening to hear what he has to say about pro GMing. As someone who's new and starting out, it's encouraging to hear his war stories...and horror stories. This guy has really been put through the wringer. But he clearly has a lot of heart for the profession and a lot of drive to do it at a truly professional level. I think anybody who wants to get into pro GMing would be well served by paying attention to what this guy says and does."
