About Gregory

Gregory Crafts is an award-winning multi-hyphenate creative artist, with more than twenty-five years of experience as an actor, playwright, director, designer, and theatrical producer under his belt. After graduating from Emerson College in Boston, MA with a Bachelor’s in Theatre Studies in 2003, Greg migrated to Los Angeles, California. He currently resides in North Hollywood, CA with his wife, Jenn, and their cats, Miranda and Bailey.

In 2008, Greg co-founded Theatre Unleashed, a 501(c)(3) non-profit theatre company located in North Hollywood, CA, and currently serves as its Managing Director, where he oversees the company’s operations. Greg is also a member of SAG-AFTRA, Actors' Equity, the Dramatists Guild, the Alliance of Los Angeles Playwrights, an Ovation Voter, and a founding board member of the Theatrical Producers League of Los Angeles.

In 2016, Greg and his wife Jenn teamed up to form a live event venue management company. On January 1st, 2017, the pair took control of studio/stage, a unique performance space located in L.A's KoreaTown. Now working under the banner of The StageCrafts, Jenn and Greg are actively seeking new venues to add to their portfolio. Recently, Greg has been named the venue representative to the board of directors of the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

In the age of COVID-19, Greg has turned his passion for tabletop role-playing games into a new hustle, and is now working with Mastermind Adventures as a GM-for-Hire. Book him to run your next Dungeons & Dragons campaign!

With what little free time he has, Greg enjoys supporting local theatre, reading historical fiction, shotgunning sci-fi shows on Netflix, playing video games, designing websites, participating in 5k mud runs, collecting comic books, playing D&D, and practicing martial arts. He also nurses an unhealthy obsession with the Boston Red Sox.

Greg is Exceptional!

“Greg took on our beginner group with zero roleplay game experience and took us through an incredible one-off adventure together. He was so patient and and fantastic storyteller. Can’t recommend him enough!”

– Amanda

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Super Fun DM!

“Greg was the DM for my first game ever, and he was so kind and patient with our batch of first timers! He crafted a fun, wacky story with some great action, and answered all our questions as the game went along. I would definitely recommend him if you’re a beginner, and he very clearly has lots of know-how and creativity for advanced players too. Thank you, Greg!”

– Madison

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Lots of Fun!

“Greg is fantastic, and the D&D game was lots of fun.

I was invited to a small group to play The Bard Brigade campaign over zoom. After a short tutorial, we were on our way. This was a fun and novel experience overall. I’d recommend it.

The web-based D&D interface was a bit too complicated for the simple story we had (too many choices), but we adjusted. Basically you just need to roll the digital 20 sided die. No knowledge of D&D required, just bring an open mind and your imagination.”

– Titus D.

⭐⭐⭐⭐

“I have played with Greg for many years and he has run multiple games for me over those years. His STRONG theater background and experience help bring the games to life from sniveling goblins to terrifying vampires.”

– Mike R.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Full Game Enjoyment

“Greg is one of the most observant and considerate Dungeon Masters I have had the pleasure of collaborating with. He is prepared with great ideas but is not afraid to incorporate anything fun and interesting you bring to the table with you. An opportunity to play with Greg leading your game is a great one. Take it!”
– Tanya T.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Awesome Time In Strahd Must Die!

“I had a tremendous time playing Greg’s six hour one-shot of Strand Must Die! From the dynamic lighting of the maps, the epic music for the different areas, and the non-stop suspense to action to panic to suspense, it was AWESOME! I highly recommend Greg as a GM and look forward to the next time I get to sit at a table where he is running the adventure.

P.S. I especially appreciate how he works with players of all skill levels, making sure that everyone feels comfortable so they can immerse themselves in the story. A true Host/Entertainer of the highest caliber.”

– Paul M.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Best

“Greg is not only a great storyteller, but he’s patient and kind. So, if you’re relatively new to D&D, he can guide you. I highly recommend Greg for beginners and advanced players.”
– Adam S.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Huggable DM

“Greg is an incredibly considerate and inventive GM. He is excellent at rolling with changing scenarios inside and outside gameplay — all while keeping a genial attitude. He also has amazing bad accents. Seriously, he’s just oodles of fun to play with.”
– Victoria W.
