The Geeky & Genki Team

All of these people are awesome.
Alex Mayo

Alex Mayo

Editor-in-Chief

Alex was born and raised in the seething metropolis of Cincinnati, Ohio. Raised on a steady diet of samurai films and punk rock, Musashi wandered from college-major to college-major before finally settling on graphic design / commercial illustration – hoping to secure a toe-hold in the comic book industry.

While that turned out to be an ill-conceived plan, it did give him time to start his first website – Thick’n’Fudgy – which was every bit as juvenile as it sounds. Destroy-All-Monsters.com was founded in 2001, was later re-dubbed Yellow-Menace.com, and finally became GeekyAndGenki.com in 2012.

Musashi still lives in Southwestern, Ohio with his wife, four kids, three goldfish, and a pair of dead crabs.

Ed Mcw

Ed Mcw

Webmaster

Raised by wolves in the wilds of Detroit, Ed’s geeky fate was sealed in 2nd grade, when a friend showed him the inserts from Expedition to the Barrier Peaks during recess. Since then, he’s wasted a lot of time roleplaying, reading comic books (and a lot of really bad fantasy novels), watching Hong Kong films and Anime, and, well, being a geek. In spite of being (arguably) Geeky & Genki’s most curmudgeonly member, Ed harbors a secret love for sappy anime like Kimagure Orange Road and everything Takahashi Rumiko has ever done.

Anakhouri

Anakhouri

AnaKhouri was abandoned in the wilds of Hungary as an infant and raised by a clan of angry badgers. There she remained until being rescued and adopted by an American couple. Currently she lives with her husband, their man-child and cat familiar. To this day she sleeps in a burrow behind their house. She is a raving fan of all things geeky but particularly books and Sanrio. She is working on her second fantasy novel. If you want to read more of her fiction check out her blog. If you would like to send her presents, she enjoys zombie movies, soba noodles, and flannel pajamas.

Steph McW

Steph McW

Steph is a mystery wrapped in an enigma, covered with a crunchy candy shell. When she’s not avoiding rain at all costs, she spends her time making geek-flavored wallets for Sova Leatherworks, playing video games and tabletop RPGs, reading books, and doing musical things with Au Revoir Borealis. She also reads far, far too many web comics.

Clyde Rhoer

Clyde Rhoer

Theory From the Closet

Clyde was born in a hospital. He has done an interesting thing, an important thing, and a weird thing. Clyde also enjoys doing other things and stuff. By now this bio should have done it’s work in letting you know what an interesting life Clyde lives.

He currently resides in a different place with an Xbox 360, and an Alienware.

Andy Kitkowski

Andy Kitkowski

Super Excite Game: Let's Podcasting!

Andy Kitkowski was destined for a life of nameless mediocrity, but in valiant struggle rebelled against the fates, seizing a life of named mediocrity instead. He lived in Tokyo and Gunma prefecture for five total years, an experience which can be best summarized as “I can read almost sixty percent of Anything!”. Japanese manga, sociology/counterculture books, video games and tabletop RPGs take the sting of Japanese illiteracy away, replacing it in grueling slowness with barely functional literacy. He currently lives in Research Triangle Park NC with his lovely wife Orie and three cute cats, where he spends his days delving the depths of computer storage engineering, and his nights in a constant state of stress relief from his days. Mancrush: Terry Crews.

Matt Sanchez

Matt Sanchez

Super Excite Game: Let's Podcasting!

Matt was born and raised in the wild suburbs just outside of Los Angeles. After graduation, he realized his education was not yet complete and embarked on a journey around the world to find himself. There have been several media adaptations of his travails, including Fist of the North Star, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure (6th part), and the music video for Pat Benatar’s “Love is a Battlefield”. Destiny has led him to Atlanta, where he lives with his wife and twin sons and a large stack of Japanese role-playing games that cry softly to be translated and/or played.
