unnamedElisabeth Day

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 is a cheerful nerd who spends her days working at a local school in the administrative office. Outside of work, she can be found reading (both novels and graphic novels), gaming, or marathoning her next show on Netflix. Laura is typically running circles around Pittsburgh and exploring the city when she’s not geeking out. She looks forward to meeting fellow geeks and finding her favorite brunch drink!

Top 5 Geek-Outs: Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Mass Effect series, Marvel

Favorite Brunch Drink: I’m a brunch newb, so I guess I’ll have to try them all!

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 Killmeyer  image1

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.

Addie Connersaddiebio

When not in downtown Pittsburgh at her 9 to 5, Addie spends all available waking hours on her geekery. She began her organized geek career as a member of the Board of Directors for the first two LeakyCons and hasn’t looked back since. Addie also loves to run, spend time with friends, and travel with her husband (ok, pretty much just to Vegas).
Top 5 Geek-Outs: Harry Potter, Star Wars, Doctor Who, Disney/Once Upon A Time
Favorite Brunch Drink: Mimosas! (please note, this is plural)
The one nerd I’d be stuck on a desert island with for all eternity (if need be): Obi-Wan Kenobi. He is clever, a warrior, and a Jedi who uses his brain and questions the decisions of the Council. And his sarcasm game is always on point. Not to mention, he could totally use the Force to feed me grapes and fan me in the shade on my desert island hammock (they come with those, right?).
