Sam Roberts is a Brooklyn-based writer who's been playing and running tabletop games for most of his life. He co-created the award-winning (kickstarted!) online series, Red Scare, and has worked on television shows including Prison Break, Party Down, and Netflix's Maniac. He's perhaps more famous, at least among his gamer friends, for the time he successfully grappled an otyugh.
