Meet The Chapter Heads

Aerin

Aerin is a Digital Marketer, new Mum and Iggle. She loves spending time making her tiny human giggle (he’s learning), playing board games with her husband, eating sweets and playing Tsum Tsum on her phone. She’s a Connecticut transplant from Maine (sans accent)  looking to make new adult friends because adult friends are surprisingly hard to find.

Geeky Top 10: Music, Snail Mail, Design, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Internets, Owls, Board Games, Crafting, Photography

Brunch Drink: Iced Coffee (I like a little coffee with my cream & sugar)

Quote to Live By: “Driving is like Karaoke – your own is epic, other people’s is just embarrassing or alarming.” – Ruth Ware, In A Dark, Dark Wood

Christina

Christina is a Clinical Social Worker by day and reader and video gamer by night. She loves to spend her time shopping for books to add to her never ending “to read” pile and stealthing through grass and hay piles to annihilate the enemy. She also enjoys crafting and sewing, especially when it’s Harry Potter related. She’s a Connecticut native looking to meet more geeky people like her.

Margaret

Margaret loves breakfast, especially brunch and all things dining related. She’s a Connecticut native and will probably be here for a long time, so checking out the various brunch spots is an adventure for her. She also loves the outdoors, especially hiking.  In addition to brunching and hiking, she particularly enjoys tabletop board games. Anything with meeples makes her happy.

Geeky Top 10: Game of Thrones, Deadpool, behavioral economics, freakonomics, Bobs Burgers, Guardians of the Galaxy, all things Stephen Colbert, board games, animal facts (especially guinea pig or groundhog related), and the Simpsons of course.
Brunch Drink: Hard apple cider (this isn’t a brunch drink, but it’s my favorite)
