Meet Your Officer

Officer Megan M

Megan moved to Gainesville in 2019 from Portland OR. Raised in the nerd scene of the pacific northwest, she fit right in as a Member of GGB before stepping into an officer role. She’s a strange wholesome hybrid of fit bro and hard core nerd. Want a buddy for your first 5k? Trying to decide between the FATE, Pathfinder or Dungeon and Dragons for your home game? She’s 1000% there for you.

Geeky Top 10: Star Trek the Next Generation, Ouran Host Club, Zelda, Pokémon, Blood Child by Octavia Butler, Dungeons and Dragons, philosophical table top LARPs, Ghost in the Shell, The Order of the Good Death, Disney

Fictional Boyfriend/Girlfriend: Haruhi Fujioka (Ouran Host Club)/ Elias Ainsworth (ancient magus bride)

Brunch Drink of Choice: Tequila Sunrise or Coffee with Baileys

Officer Lauren

Laura moved to Gainesville in 2003 from Sarasota. Raised on Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Harry Potter, she was happy to dabble in larping briefly before finding a D&D group (which is still going strong twenty years later with the occasional years-long break here and there). She even invited the 501st to her wedding as a surprise for her Star Wars loving husband. In the last couple years she started spreading her wings as a baby GM but always seems to homebrew stuff instead of using a module.

Geeky Top 5: Worlds Beyond Number, Dimension 20, tabletop gaming, board gaming, dabbling in video games (especially games like Stardew, Portal, Zelda, City of Heroes, Rimworld, Civilization, Bioshock, etc.)

Officer Tanya

Tanya returned to Gainesville in 2020 after being away for 14 years. She is a Gator fan, and also a huge anime fan. Her favorite anime series are Fullmetal Alchemist, Ouran High School Host Club, Fruits Basket, Fairy Tail, Inuyasha, and Haikyuu. However, her watch list keeps growing despite trying to watch several episodes a week. Along with anime, she cosplays, creates fanart, and writes FanFiction. Outside of anime, she enjoys playing DnD with her family, and playing Pokémon on her Nintendo Switch. She loves GGB, and is looking forward to meeting more friends.

Fictional Husbando/Wifu: Edward Elric and Erza Scarlett
Brunch Drink of Choice: Espresso martini

Officer Cynthia

Cynthia was born a long time ago in a city sort-of far away. Her family moved from Michigan to South Florida when she was just a wee nerdling, and Cynthia moved to Gainesville in 1989. She’s a nerd of the old-school variety (i.e., her brain can’t wrap itself around gaming or anime); plant hoarder; animal lover, rescuer of small critters like lizards, frogs, and baby possums; creative and crafty; misunderstood by family because of nerdiness and addiction to Baby Yoda; rescuer of two of the most challenging dogs ever. 

Geeky Top 10: Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Dune, Marvel movies, Kingsman, Jason Bourne, Mission Impossible, British panel shows, loud stupid action movies.

Fictional Boyfriend/Girlfriend: Loki

Quiet Cat Energy
