MEET OUR GEEKY OFFICERS
Hi! I’m Kristine and yes, that’s a Butterbeer in my hand! So it should be pretty obvious that my favorite fandom is Harry Potter. Besides that, I’m a software developer who spends her free time watching movies, TV, and reading.
Geeky Top Ten: Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Psych, Captain America, LOTR, YA books, Star Wars, Funko Pop! collecting, Toothless, and Butterbeer
Brunch Drink of Choice: Mimosas (or Butterbeer, but that’s hard to find)
Christina is a TV and politics nerd who once wrote a paper on representations of justice in Avatar the Last Airbender. All day long she is listening to something… podcasts, musicals, wxpn, audiobooks… there isn’t enough time for everything she wants to hear. She has enjoyed fantasy books since before she could read. When she was 11 she fell in love with science fiction as well when she read Ender’s Game for the first time. Later some guy would tell her that Ender’s Game isn’t really science fiction. To that she says: “Rules are for muggles!” There isn’t a wrong way to write a genre or to participate in a fandom. She likes to critique her favs and love her problematics. She coordinates market research projects for money which she mostly spends on her beloved golden doodle. She is most happy when she can nerd out about two things at once, like Hamilton (a musical about politics). If anyone knows of a sci fi show about golden doodles let her know!
Geeky Top Ten: Web comics and Comic books(The Wicked and The Divine <3), costume Dramas (like Downton Abbey and Mad Men), Pemberley Digital (and other web series), Parks and Recreation, Joss Whedon shows (but not always the person), Game of Thrones, Battlestar Galactica, Orphan Black, iZombie, Fringe
Brunch Drink of Choice: Bloody Mary or Tea
Doctor Who Companion: Amy Pond
Jenna was introduced into geekdom by her stepmother, Leslie, with Star Trek: TNG and hasn’t looked back since. Like Christina, she is an avid listener, as well as an avid reader, and at any given time, she can be found listening to an audiobook, musical theater, popular music, or reading, especially YA fiction. Her favorite genres in YA , include science fiction, realistic fiction, and speculative fiction.
Geeky Top Ten: Star Trek, Harry Potter, The Expanse, the MCU, Jane Austen, Kdramas, Musical Theater, TCM, Police Procedurals, and almost anything BBC.
Brunch Drink of Choice: Mint Julep
Gabby is a Florida native and former Walt Disney World Cast Member who, despite curious glances fromothers, is happy to have traded palm trees and flamingos for Philadelphia city streets and four seasons. In elementary school, her mom introduced her to Star Wars and all was lost – from there, she developed an unhealthy addiction to Star Trek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer as an adolescent and has now fully descended into the addicting world of Marvel and DC Comics, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Sherlock, American Horror Story…and the list goes on. Although a novice seamstress, Gabby loves attending cons in full-on cosplay and is always looking for a con buddy to explore with!
Brunch Drink of Choice: Something sweet where I can’t taste any alcohol
Comic Book Boyfriend: Loki (duh)
