The Phoenix Officers
Erin (right) is a graphic designer by day, nerd by night… err, rather, nerd by day and night! While growing up, Erin knew the nerd was strong within her. She loved playing video games and reenacting her favorite movies and TV shows to anyone that would watch. While most girls her age had a crush on Josh Hartnett, Erin was madly in love with Mr. Frodo Baggins. Today, Erin likes to work on her blog, E-Rad’s Cantina and spends her night trying to figure out the best ways to cosplay (there are so many skills involved, ahh!)!

A good latte
Does Archer count? Because, it’s Archer.
Amanda has always had a particular fondness for things of a geeky nature. In her free time, Amanda likes to play MarioKart, play crossword puzzles, crochet (very poorly), and watch anything on BBC.
Doctor Who, Captain America, The Hunger Games, Harry Potter and Jared Leto
Uh, Peter Pan if that counts. He was my first crush.
Stefanie is a marketing manager, fantasy writer, part-time dogsitter, and die-hard Phoenix Comicon fan. She loves to cosplay her favorite characters at con, like Wonder Woman/Elektra/Clara Oswald/something steampunk. Growing up as an avid life-long reader and fan of sci-fi, fantasy, and YA, Stefanie recently began self-publishing her own fantasy book on Chanillo, called Untested. Every month you will find her cheering on Dean Ambrose and the other superstars of the WWE for their pay-per-views. When she’s not reading or writing, she’s probably shaking it in Zumba class.

It was 4 years ago when Chantel finally released her inner geek. She spent countless hours playing Halo, created her first Link costume, and was introduced to the world of Marvel; since then she never turned backed. Chantel enjoys reading, collecting stuffed animals and figurines, a noob in the comic department, a runner, and always planning her next trip to Disneyland. Lastly, Buckbeak is her spirit animal.

Nicky’s geekiness was cultivated as a young girl through hours of NES and Super Mario Bros., and eventually her gray Gameboy and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. As a teen she was introduced to Ranma ½ and Sailor Moon on VHS through her soon-to-be-boyfriend-eventual-husband. As a young adult she fell in love with Kakashi Hatake and even went on to write Naruto fanfic. Today, geekery is part of her daily life because of her many fandoms and her two teenage daughters who are also about that geek life.
Nicky is Standing Rock Sioux and Navajo. She is an activist for Native American rights, a fat activist, and is a plus-size fashion blogger at RedstreakGirl.com. You can find her playing board games, biking, at the Phoenix Comicon, and binge-watching the latest Netflix series.
Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Twilight Trilogy (my guilty pleasure, don’t judge), Interview With The Vampire, Legend, The Princess Bride, Marvel cinematic universe, Star Wars, Game of Thrones – Jason Momoa is my sun and stars, and Bush the band.
