MEET OUR GEEKY OFFICERS
Vanessa grew up completely engulfed by movies, tv, and other geek culture. She played way too much Nintendo, and board & card games (Tripoley and cribbage FTW). She loves science, word games, video games, trivia, terrible, terrible puns, and awesome alliterations. Now she makes nerdy clothes, costumes, and other stuff with her magical sewing machine. Basically, being a nerd girl is the only way she knows how to live. She’s even a part of the GGB HQ team!
A further random sampling of her multitudinous geeky loves would include Star Trek/Wars, 80s/early 90s sci-fi/horror (Terry Gilliam, Sam Raimi, early Spielberg, early Tim Burton, Paul Verhoeven, John Carpenter, etc.), The Legend of Zelda, Mythbusters, Xena, DC, Community, Pinky & the Brain, The Expanse, Red Letter Media, The Simpsons, Universal Monsters, Ed Wood, Ray Harryhausen, costuming, LOTR, Kurt Vonnegut, Jim Henson, B-movies, MST3K, Super Mario, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Little Shop of Horrors, Mel Brooks, Lego, movie scores, Monty Python, Avatar/Korra, Lego, Playmobil, Back to the Future, oh, and she’s a total Disnerd too. After a lifetime of geekiness, her list is too freaking long. She basically lives and breathes nerdery.
A born and raised Texan who was raised on watching spaghetti westerns and Syfi movies grew to love all things nerdy. From waking up early to watch cartoons like X-Men and Pokémon and racing home after school to watch Sailor Moon and Gundam Wing, her love of anime and comics continued to grow. She loves Batman the Animated series and is a big of a collector of all things Batman.
She enjoys video games (usually Nintendo games), puzzles, board games, card games (Magic the Gathering), trivia, reading and loves corny jokes and puns and loves animals. She is an owner of two corgis (Jarvis & Harley Quinn) and can be seen walking around with them as she plays Pokémon.
Other fandoms she enjoys are Yu Yu Hakusho, Rurouni Kenshin, Fushigi Yugi, Star Wars, ACORT series, LOTR, DC , MARVEL and Disney and all things Dinosaurs!
