Jose Ortiz

Game Leader
Jose Oritz

Jose Ortiz is thrilled to join Writopia Lab as a Game Leader. After graduating from George Mason University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts, he was elated to actually find work as a visual artist, painting logos for MTV and Nickelodeon, teaching art to children and adults, and painting backdrops as a Scenic Artist for the Shakespeare Theatre Company. He has had a lifelong fascination with the fantasy genre, D&D in particular, and before running games professionally, he was one of three Mid-Atlantic regional administrators for Wizards of the Coast’s “Living Greyhawk” campaign. In that role, he did more writing, editing, and Dungeon Mastering in three years than was probably healthy, but loved every minute. Today, he splits his time working as a freelance illustrator in the gaming industry and being a Game Leader at Writopia Lab, where he is pumped to introduce young people to the enriching experience of role-playing games.
