Raffael Boccamazzo, PsyD (most people just call him “Doctor B”) is a doctor of clinical psychology and an unabashed, lifelong geek and gamer. From the moment a family friend hooked up their original Nintendo Entertainment System to his family’s TV, Doctor B was enamored with video games and their power to challenge us and bring people together. This developed into enthusiasm for tabletop games, including his greatest geek love, Dungeons & Dragons. He dreamt of using his psychology background to help others in the geek and gamer community use their hobbies to find happiness and connection. In addition to his work as a frequent public speaker and mental health advocate as the clinical director of the mental health nonprofit Take This (TakeThis.org), he runs the administrative side of Save Point Behavioral Health in Seattle, and he is a frequent consultant, collaborator, and trainer on the use of tabletop roleplaying games like Dungeons & Dragons in therapeutic and educational settings.

Greg Tito has had weird and long career as an Off Broadway stage manager, a playwright, a theater carpenter, a secretary, an RPG designer, a games journalist, and now a PR/Marketing person. He has loved Dungeons & Dragons ever since 1985 when he found an old copy of the AD&D Dungeon Master’s Guide on his brother’s bookshelf and he honed that love of fantasy storytelling in the dark streets of Sasserine by way of the Upper West Side gaming group he joined in 2004. He moved his family (wife + two young kids) to Seattle in 2015 to work on D&D and he’s never looked back.

Shelly Mazzanoble will always play a magic-user. There. She said it. Enough pretending to want to break out of her comfort zone. She’s a magic-user. She’s also the brand lead for Avalon Hill and loves talking about that one time she played Diplomacy and SOMEONE (okay, it was Ben Petrisor) stabbed her in the back and took over her beloved Russia. If you enjoy tales of sorcery, board game upheavals, and reasons her 3 year-old is crying (HINT: She tried to make him eat a Nutella crepe), find Shelly on Twitter and Facebook.
