Tom is a professional code slinger and armchair futurist, transit nerd, VR enthusiast, and robotics fan. Video games are his longest running hobby. He dreams of a digitally enhanced future, commuting by roller coaster, and living in a theme park.
In addition to that of his faithful dogs, Swiper and Walnut, Tom enjoys the company of his robotic cleaners, Elmer, Vacii, and Mopii, even though the only thing the latter three fetch is dirt.
Brian has been a nerd, gamer, and comic book geek since the Atari 5200 was cool, nerds weren’t, and comics cost $0.75. Though his hobbies now cost a fair bit more, he is no less passionate about his escapism. He is proud to be a part of both Florida Geek Scene and The Nerdstravaganza.
-Lawyer, Entrepreneur and Law Professor by day.*
-Gamer, Comic Hound, Podcaster, D20 Roller and Crime Fighter by night.

Christopher Robin Negelein
Chris started as a storyteller of worlds, wonders and words at the age of twelve when he had exhausted the complete inventory of fantastical fiction in both of his local libraries. From that point, he started up his own stories and adventures while never looking back.
A couple of years later, he heard some guys talking about Flaming Swords: Orcs On Fire. After figuring out they weren’t talking about a Heavy Metal band, but some new kind of game fueled on imagination, caffeine, and the coolest dice known to the Roman Empire, he turned on his GM mojo and told new stories in a bold, interactive way.
If there’s paints, video games, tentacles, or steam-driven gears involved, then he’s probably grabbed a brush, mashed a button, ducked for his life, or rolled down the Ghost Rock Redeye with said geeky hobby in hand.
