Meet the team bringing your gaming experience to life!
Andre’a is an avid gamer girl and proud member of the Nerd Herd! She has been
playing some form of RPG for as long as she can really remember. She now plays
almost any game she can get her hands on in RPG, miniature, board or card games. If
she’s not playing, she’s planning the next event in the house for a paint night or a GM
group…and the food to go with it. She spent nearly twenty years in public education
as a secondary teacher, Dean and Assistant Principal. During those decades she
taught students her love of the games, sponsored numerous gaming clubs and is
proud to know some of her former students now as full on adult members of the
Nerd Herd! She left public education to pursue her passions for writing and the
world of gaming that has brought her joy.
Andrea is also known as the “better half” of the “first couple of gaming” as she and
her husband Donny have shared their passion for gaming together for over 25 years.
Together they own Gamer Girl Games and currently host conventions in the Denver
When you see her, make sure to say Hi!
Donny has been playing tabletop and video games since 1983. He is decidedly old.
He got his start with the Moldvay box set for Dungeons and Dragons playing In
Search of the Unknown. At the completion of the adventure his character wanted to
go into town. The Dungeon Master had no idea what to do and then ended the game.
After that, Donny decided that he should use his creative 9 year old expertise to
design his own adventures for friends to play in. His first adventure, The Search for
the Kriss Dagger was easily defeated by older brother Danny. After that, Donny went
back to the design room to start working on his masterpiece, which still isn't ready
for publication as of today. He has been the GM of countless role playing game
systems for the past 35 years for his ever shifting group of miscreants. His passions
are for learning rules systems, and how to make them fade into the background, and
to liven up the story of whatever game is being played.
As a long time HVAC technician and tradesman, Donny gave up blue collar work in
lieu of less lucrative work in the event planning and writing RPG material for a soon
to be released kickstarter. He is currently part owner of Gamer Girl Games LLC and
Genghis Con Colorado with his better half making up the dynamic duo that is known
as the "First Couple of Gaming"
Chris first got into gaming when a friend from his boy scout troop gave him his first deck of Magic cards, starting him down the path of blissful financial ruin that only gaming can provide. From there he began experimenting with harder games such as classic Deadlands, eventually spiraling into full blown addiction upon discovering Savage Worlds.
From there Chris went on to become a bad influence on others by running games at various conventions, including Anomalycon (where he even briefly served as gaming director), Tacticon, and of course Genghis Con.
Chris is married to Sara Martinez, known for her Savage Worlds adventure "Killer Chops", published by Fabled Environments. Sara also runs the Savage Worlds East Texas University living campaign, ETU Class of 2019. They have a 2 year old son and a 10 month old daughter who already seem to be devloping an obsession with dice.
Chris feeds his crippling source book and map addiction by running the software company Vaquero Digital Services, and serves as the CTO for Gamer Girl Games.
