There are a lot of great people in front of and behind the cameras here at Saving Throw. We couldn’t do it without the incredible people who get together to share their love of gaming. Get to know the cast and crew of Saving Throw and connect with us on our social media!
Dom is a Saving Throw co-founder and has been producing web video since 2008. He was bitten by the RPG bug in the 3rd grade with the Basic Rules D&D set. Things quickly spiraled out of control from there. As Head Honcho he oversees all streams, video projects, and endeavors.
Tyler started playing 2nd edition D&D with his older brothers back in 1992. He co-founded Saving Throw with Dom Zook and Ben Dunn in 2013, and he works on the show as head writer, GM (Hoi Chummer), player (Lost Brigade), and video game streamer (Rhoades Legacy).
Improviser, gamer, and now a roleplayer. Gaurav always seems to find a way to make himself even nerdier. He provides his creative talents on camera as well as behind the scenes with promotional art and video sketches for Saving Throw.
Called “America’s DM” by some – a dubious title of his own devising – David lives in a fantasy world that’s occasionally obscured by the veil of reality. He’s been lucky enough to DM for the “Crit Juice” and “Never Tell Me The Odds!” podcasts. He hopes to be a Zaratan when he grows up.
Thanks to Saving Throw, Ben now has his own place, a woman that loves him and a job that pays well. If Ben can relay one thing to all the Throwers it’s this: Follow your dreams. Even if they are those scary naked chainsaw juggling ones!
Amy Vorpahl is a writer, actor, pro-RPG gamer, and singer/songwriter from Texas. You may have seen her on shows like The News Room and The Mindy Project, on the internet at Nerdist, Geek and Sundry, and Buzzfeed, and you may have heard her musical comedy album, “Songs in the Key of D&D.” She’s your IRL Party Bard.
Shawn is pretty cool. He coined the term “Garbage People,” and also single-handedly keeps our Heroes of the Storm teams alive.
The Dungeon Bastard himself, Tom’s RPG career began before long before man conquered THAC0.
With 10 years of improv comedy, 8 years of standup comedy and 2 years of sketch comedy experience under her belt, Havana loves meeting amazing creatives and collaborating with them on cool thinks like Saving Throw!
Amateur game designer, programer, and writer for Hunters Books, Imperial Odyssey and Cthulhu Dark. Mason has been playing and running RPGs since the age of 7 when his father introduced him and his brothers to Advanced Dungeons and Dragons.
Traycee King is pretty groovy – she likes things and eats pastries.
Blythe is a host, writer, and glorified production assistant who loves all things geeky and nerdy. She started playing D&D ten years ago and has had a love for tabletop RPGs ever since. She’s currently one of the players on Miss Adventures and The Lost Brigade.
Teri Gamble is a board member for Short Round Productions and works as a Publicist for Media Circus…but she has the most fun taking classes and performing improv at The Second City in Hollywood & role playing with the folks at Saving Throw!
Wes Otis started playing AD&D in the early ‘80’s and soon learned that he loved running games. Now, he runs Plate Mail Games, a company he started in 2013 to bring professional audio to tabletop RPGs. He truly loves his work and being able to run games for Saving Throw. It’s a whole lot of fun.
Michelle Otis has always had a love of the arts. She was raised in a family of artists, musicians, and circus folk (no joke). Other than music, one of Michelle’s interests has always been gaming. She used to spend hours poring over her father’s copy of the AD&D Monster Manual and other sacred tomes. Being able to combine her love of music with her love of gaming is a dream come true.
Steven Pope was born outside Sacramento, California in 1990 and then proceeded to live in the state of denial. He writes for geeky publications around the web when he’s not running narrative-driven games like MASKS or MonsterHearts.
Mac Beauvais is a true renaissance woman, or whenever it was that witches were burned at the stake. In addition to trying to break people’s spirit at the game table, she’s an actor, co-host of the Disney Distilled podcast, writer, model, and may or may not kill again.
Jordan is an ex-actor and perpetual dabbler from Houston, Texas. He enjoys cooking and all things gaming. Though he grew up reading AD&D books and cut his roleplaying teeth playing D&D 3.5, Jordan’s favorite games to run are Savage Worlds and Roll for Shoes. Sometimes he is Trumpy.
Meghan is an actor/yoga instructor/person who dresses up as characters and fights with swords at kid’s birthday parties. She loves cooking, singing, traveling, painting miniatures, taking pictures of everything all the time, and playing the occasional game or two! And cats!
Kelsey is originally from Denver and moved to LA to escape the snow and pursue fun new adventures including Improv, comedy, and even audiobook narration. Check out her awesome storytelling on Audible, and follow her silliness on Twitter and Instagram!
Nick (aka Sungrowler) has been playing RPGs off and on since childhood. He is an avid reader and would prefer to know something about everything rather than everything about one thing. He loves making things in all materials – words, wood, cloth, leather, code, and steel. He’s a real cool dude!
Teline is a writer, comedian, and filmmaker. She was raised in Georgia, studied improv in Chicago, and has an MFA from Ohio State. Her work has appeared in The Gettysburg Review, The Crab Orchard Review, and numerous film festivals.
When Eric isn’t ruling over The Legendary Free City of Tyr, he is a video editor who also performs Sketch and Improv comedy at The Nerdist School. He also co-hosts a weekly podcast called Just Cool Enough where he and a few friends talk about mostly nothing.
It’s Jordan! No, not that Jordan. The other one!
