Joey aka GiddyGeeker – Founder/Organizer
Joey is eager to point out that she does not claim to be an expert on all geekeries – she’s just happy to help organize it! Her current geekery includes British Sci Fi (Doctor Who, MisFits, Orphan Black), Star Wars, All things Marvel, DC TV shows, board games, and is always expanding her circle of fandoms. She’s mostly prepared for a Zombie Apocalypse, but is always willing to give new technologies a consideration for her war chest.
Although she does not shy away from being queen of the Queen City geeks – she finds it best to hide her identity via an alter ego as a mindless corporate drone.

Mikki – Social Media Intern
Mikki has participated with groups including the Southern Belle Ghostbusters, Pineapple-Shaped Lamps, the 105th Squad and FanDames Initiative. Mikki is a strong advocate for promoting community amongst fellow geek women. During her travels as a professional traveling art model, she helps conventions wherever she can as a panelist or volunteer and cosplays for personal enjoyment in her spare time. We are so excited to have her helping out our team while juggling a full course load as a graduating senior at UNC-Charlotte.

Mel – Grammar Guru
Mel is a member of the Royal Grammar Police, whose role is to protect and defend our website and social media against rampaging commas, spelling mishaps, and semantically awkward phrasing. Mel’s geekery best portrays itself in her obsession with books and her love of linguistics, but her other fandoms include Supernatural (and all things spooky), Star Wars, Marvel (especially Iron Man), and of course…Harry Potter (Go Ravenclaw!).
