Shammo earned his Master’s of Education from the University of Maryland, College Park. He taught middle school social studies for several years, and has been working with kids for much longer. Shammo was the first person to join Dave and run groups for Alternative Games (then Takoma D&D), way back in 2000. He found his voice in roleplaying and over two decades he’s seen how the game can help players understand academics, build confidence, and develop social skills. In his downtime he likes to write songs, listen for his music inside his adventures!
