Pamela Punzalan
Storyteller-in-Charge (EIC & Founder)

Pamela Punzalan is in her 30s, otherwise known as that age where people tend to give no fucks about nothing. Pam – also summonable by invoking the names Pammu and Pammeth – loves her games, loves her smokes, and processes things through fangirlism and rage. Formerly of What’s a Geek, her friends believe she is a Red Lantern. She believes she can be a wallaby whenever she wants to be.

Noey Pico
Mission Control (Operations & Community Lead)

Noey Pico is a tiny Ball of Feelings™ and an audioromantic with a passion for writing, and all things geek. A former contributing editor at What’s a Geek, she has an ongoing love affair with tabletop gaming because it’s the closest thing she's got to being a jaeger pilot. She also writes music, you can check her work out over on her Bandcamp page.

Denice identifies as a geek nanny, and is constantly disappointed that real life doesn’t come with a Motherlode cheat. She writes and performs funny smut with Deus Sex Machina and puts her knowledge of mundane pop culture trivia to use with Geekfight Trivia Night.

our contributors.

Ari
Ari writes and edits marketing copy for a living, but it's in telling stories that he comes alive. In the time he keeps to himself, he is an irregular DM, a VN narrative designer, and a writer of too-long short stories. Favorite authors are Haruki Murakami, H.P. Lovecraft, and Joe Abercrombie.
Debby
Debby Falcon is mother to a sweet Siamese cat (Garrus Meowkarian!) and a creative designer by profession. Will play almost any game but has an irrational fear of zombie games. Leans towards MMOs, casual mobile games and tabletop games. Small eyes, big rage.
Frieda
Frieda Mak titles herself as a self-proclaimed tomboy, serial casual gamer and occasional napper. Lover of games of all kinds, be it digital or not, listens to anime and video game soundtracks 90% of the time, and is eternally obsessed with a certain character known to many as Bruce Banner. Occasionally contributes to GGG when she can actually process her emotions into coherent English words.
Ian
An aspiring software developer and system administrator by day, an obsessive gamer geek by night.

When he's not busy playing on his gaming PC, he likes to spend the rest of his free time devouring podcasts and tech news articles. Weird gaming interests include truck driving simulators and heavily modded Morrowind sessions.
Josh
"I exist as I am, that is enough." - Walt Whitman
Josh is a book lover first and foremost, and when not reading, you can find him drowning in movies and TV shows. He's a big fan of Batman, indie pop, and many other random things. He occasionally posts movie reviews for his blog: cinesseur.tumblr.com

She's a freelance writer/editor, video game journalist, events host, unicorn, and couch potato. She also co-founded Girls In Geekdom and runs the page with an all-female dream team.

the editors.

Camille
Camillelikes to bake cookies and write things - when she's not micromanaging her cities or traversing dungeons. She plays too much Team Fortress 2 and is secretly in love with John Galt. You can also check out more of her work at disguisedcyclone.com or hit her up on Twitter via @geekyDC.
Kimi
Kimi is a half English half Filipino philosophy postgrad in Ireland by day and a geek by night, who splits her writing between GGG and What's A Geek.

When she's not terrifying undergrads, she spends her time playing mono blue Magic the Gathering decks, hugging her PS4/3DS, cosplaying and crying over her husbandos and waifus in Fate/Grand Order. Determined to be a katsudon that seduces men (and women) with her mad skillz.

Known everywhere as spectrumrays.
Jerica
Jerica will soon fulfill her dream of becoming a real-life Pokémon Master. She loves true crime, reading fanfiction, and crafting. Her hair magically changes color when she’s bored (or so she wishes).
Mike
Goes by Michael, Mike, Mikey, dude, pare, or bro. Constantly gushes about food, games, gadgets, books, movies, and shows. Sometimes writes about them, too.
Pau

Non-binary, bisexual and a writer of many naughty and scary things (sometimes both at the same time). Likes the feels-y video games and anime with the ambiguous label as 'psychological'. Pretends to be a 1920's gangster with their dark jazz playlist. Find them on Twitter complaining about something random.

graphics & creatives.

Aeron
Aeron is a freelance illustrator who spends her free time writing and playing video games. She loves cute things, which is interestingly juxtaposed with her love of really cool video game weapons. Her ultimate goal is to design characters. Follow her work over on her website and Tumblr.
Anna
Anna is an Interior Designer by day and potato by night, and a full-time Pug momma of one. Heck, she sounds like she’s always on a packed schedule, but she still makes sure to have ample time for pizza and gaming (because priorities). You can also catch up with her (a.k.a. WAGbot Mom) over at What’s A Geek.
Celes
Full time Keyakizaka fan, part time illustrator and gamer. Spends most of her time watching her fave idol group, playing games and doodling cute things.

Follow her progress via her Facebook page and Twitter: @songceles.
Danzy
Danzy photoshops things for a living while raising two four dogs. Loves horror movies, trashy television shows, and painfully spicy food. Her idea of happiness involves a faraway cabin in the woods with ten dogs and stable WiFi — the evil dead sold separately.
Huhsmile
Huhsmile is a Graphic Designer by day, and Graphic Designer sleeping by night.

She's out to be the most shoujo of them all.
Jobo
A kaladkaring introvert that plays around with the pencil and photoshop. His crystal gem is table salt.
Lee
"Freelance artist big into DND and Overwatch."
I throw 5e DnD at my friends over at #TheBullshittersOfAvila on a weekly basis , sometimes without reading the Monster Manual. I believe in the core design principle for Overwatch ("dare to see [the world] for what it could be") and wish more games, both video and tabletop, shared that kind of openness.
Maki
"The sushi that can!"
Loves TRPG and stories of nearly any medium. Binge watches fact shows and podcasts way too much. Loves collecting stickers way too much. Gives the perfect amount of puns, which is, way too much.
