About Sam

Hi, my name is Sam and I run an online community called D&D Newbie Sessions. The goal of this community is to introduce Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) to new people in a welcoming, friendly, and comfortable environment. This provides new players with a positive first experience and readies them for games with friends, family, and coworkers. The events primarily consist of one-shots which allow players to experience a wide range of what D&D has to offer without requiring the long-term commitment of an ongoing campaign. My games are open to everyone and always free.

After 2 years of running these events, I’ve introduced D&D to hundreds of people! I currently have 12 Meetup groups across the US and I run 3 games per week, cycling through each city per month. I also work with other newbie friendly Dungeon Masters (DMs) to help host additional games and special events.

I’m also striving to be one of the best DMs in the world. Each game and the different parties challenge me in new ways. I study the outcome after every game and take notes about how I can improve and what I learned. As a result, I have grown my skills tremendously over the past couple years.

Over the next 1-2 years, I will continue introducing hundreds more people to D&D. I will find and train new Dungeon Masters to help host more events. I will do these things because this is my passion. For many years I’ve struggled to define who I am and why I’m here. It wasn’t until November 14th, 2019 that I stood alone in a dimly lit office, late at night after finishing a Newbie Session, and said 3 fateful words to myself, “this is it.” I teared up because for the first time in my life I realized what I was here for and where I was going. D&D leverages my natural talents and interests. It covers every base and brings joy and purpose into my life. I want to share that with others. So please consider supporting me on this adventure. I truly believe it will bring a lot of good into the D&D community.

Thank you for your consideration!

P.S. The video is the first promo I ever made when I first started D&D Newbie Sessions.
