Meet Our Officers!
Lis is a giant geekette at heart who masquerades as a business professional by day in downtown Pittsburgh. When she’s not saving the world from business-related perils, she owns and operates her own baking company and manages the Pittsburgh Quidditch League with friends. In her spare time she likes to re watch classic 80’s movies and pretend that she too could someday be as cool as Tom Selleck.
Top 5 Geek-Outs: Harry Potter, Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Disney/Pixar, Jessica Jones (bonus for you locals: all yinz sports teams!)
Favorite Brunch Drink: Irish coffee, lite coffee please!
The one nerd I’d be stuck on a desert island with for all eternity (if need be): Han Solo. This is a no brainer. He’s cute, sarcastic, and managed to fix the hyper drive on the Millennium Falcon when all others doubted he could. He’s the ultimate man to have around to help build a hut, start a fire, and keep me entertained until a boat arrives or we’re forced to repopulate the island!
Jocelyn is an ex-media producer and future librarian who has and always will strive to get awesome content into the hands of awesome people! She’s a huge TV and film nerd and has a rather big crush on books. A Pittsburgh transplant, Jocelyn hails from the planet Ithaca, NY, where everything truly is “gorges”. She is excited to brunch her way through this incredible city with a new squad of awesome ladies!
Top 5 Geek-Outs: The X-Files, Star Trek: TNG, Harry Potter, horror and sci-fi films, 80s New Wave music
Favorite Brunch Drink: Tequila Sunrise (just tequila would do, let’s not get too fancy here)
The one nerd I’d be stuck on a desert island with for all eternity (if need be): While I’m tempted to say Magnum P.I. (also a huge Selleck fan…this chapter is full of them), I’m going to have to go with Dana Scully. She’s smart, resourceful, calm and collected in a pinch, and pretty hilarious during her down time. I have every confidence that between the two of us, we’ll be rescued in no time (and make life-long friends while we’re at it).
Laura works as a marketing professional to support her geeky hobbies… and her cat! She spends her mornings running around the city marathon training and more importantly, Pokemon training. At the end of the day, Laura can usually be found on the couch playing video games. A mile of running equals an hour of gaming, right? If she’s not gaming, Laura is either marathoning a show on Netflix, reading, or exploring the city!
Top 5 Geek-Outs: Destiny the Game, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Video Games (do I have to pick just one?!)
Favorite Brunch Drink: Coffee and a mimosa!
The one nerd I’d be stuck on a desert island with for all eternity (if need be): Hands down, Aragorn. He’s incredibly wise and an experienced warrior… not to mention tall, dark, and handsome! Considering his mass array of skills, he’d be able to fend off any unwanted company we came across and keep us alive until we could find a way off the island.
Kristin is a film and tv nerd who works at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. When she’s not ogling fossils and directing people to the nearest restroom, she can be found in front of a tv, computer, phone, and Nintendo 3DS screen, usually all at the same time. She lived in South Carolina off and on for 8 years and has 5+ cats (who she unfortunately had to leave in SC with her parents).
Top 5 Geek-Outs: Marvel, Doctor Who, Horror and SciFi, Fallout, and Twin Peaks (top 5 is hard!)
Favorite Brunch Drink: The bloodiest of Marys.
The one nerd I’d be stuck on a desert island with for all eternity (if need be): Lara Croft. She’s resourceful, curious, and badass. She’s a survivor.
