Long Bio

Dave Robison is a storyteller who has been captivated by tales and legends his entire life.

As a child, he wrote Curious George and Paddington Bear fan fiction to the indulgent delight of his family.  He was drawn to the immersive storytelling of live theater at an early age, participating in community workshops and school productions, a passion that continued through high school and college. He was also drawn to role-playing games which led to a deep appreciation of speculative fiction, cutting his genre teeth on Robert E. Howard, Michael Moorcock, and JRR Tolkien.

He attended the University of Michigan, majoring in Theater and Dance but transferred to the University of Wyoming when tuition costs got too expensive. Securing his Theater degree, Dave pursued a degree in Graphic Design and, in the years that followed, worked at dinner theaters, design studios, and ran a used bookstore. When he was hired teach computer classes at New Horizons Computer Learning Center, it began a decade long exploration of programming, education, and web development.

In 2012, Dave launched The Roundtable Podcast with friend and colleague Brion Humphrey. The podcast gave writers the opportunity to brainstorm their story ideas with established authors and editors like Lou Anders, Cat Rambo, Kameron Hurley, and Hugh Howey. The unique format combined with Dave’s over-the-top delivery and enthusiasm earned the podcast a small but dedicated following.

In 2015, Dave formed Wonderthing Studios, LLC and brought the Roundtable Podcast under its banner. The studio is the launching point for two other projects: Vex Mosaic, a monthly review of essays inspired by speculative fiction media, and an online storytelling platform to be announced in the Spring of 2017.

In 2016, Dave was honored to be invited to help lead The Ed Greenwood Group (TEGG) as its Vice-President assisting in the initialization of the diverse processes required to execute a massive shared world collaborative storytelling publishing venture.

Later that year, he was appointed Executive producer of Onder Media Group (OMG) and is currently overseeing the development of multiple media channels that celebrate speculative fiction culture in all its forms and facets.

“It’s impossible not to be infused with excitement when you spend even a few minutes with Dave. I can’t recall ever encountering a poet, actor, designer, writer, software developer before who does all of those things with passion, skill and quality.” David Ledgerwood, VP of Services, Gun.io

“Dave doesn’t just get the job done, he gets it done right the first time.” Scott Fry, Giving for Higher Education

“It is rare to find an individual who possesses both creative, technical and administrative talents at the level David does. His ability to concept, handle logistics, manage staff and work well within budgets makes him an extremely valuable resource.” Danny Dodge, Cinematographer

“David Robison’s ability to capture the essence of an issue and communicate it with clarity and compassion is remarkable. Wherever he works, he seems to bring a matter of fact sense of humor, sincerity and humanity to his tasks.” Jim Kaufman, former Sr. Product Manager, GlobalScholar
