- Nick Gallop has been playing D&D for 8 years. He hopes to facilitate a fun and fair time for everyone! As a player character, his usual build is a two-handed, weapon-wielding barbarian.
- Nick Haslam was first introduced to D&D over 20 years ago but has been campaigning for the last 5. He’s looking forward to running a great campaign! As a player, he favors gish characters.

LOCAL Greater Boston, MA Design for Anxiety Maker Series
Please note, LOCAL Greater Boston, MA Maker Series is not meeting virtually and will resume only when we can meet in person.
Anxiety is often a major challenge for adults on the spectrum, and the desire to always be perfect can lead to difficulty achieving goals and finishing projects. This makers' series is designed for a small group of 4 participants who want to connect with peers and discover new ways to cope with anxiety and perfectionism. Over the course of 14 weeks, participants will meet weekly for 3 hours at a makers studio in Greater Boston to come up with an idea, define their standards for success, and complete a project that will impact their relationship with anxiety and perfectionism in a positive way. Facilitated by Miriam Zisook.
