Meet The Team
Darth Mexican has been a geek for years. His interests include Anime, Cosplay, Comic Books, Kung Fu films, Video Games and Table Top Gaming. With strong character traits such as optimism and ambition, it’s hardly a surprise that Darth Mexican decided to create a blog centered around Geek Culture that kept the community updated on all things they care for. Darth Mexican loves his team, this page, and those that follow it!
Rob is one half of a duo of content creators by the name of Bytes N Brews! When he isn’t working a full time job or making incredible content, he is helping check out every aspect of The Geek Lyfe to ensure everything is running smoothly. Whether it is the website, discord, or otherwise he always gives advice on how the brand could improve as a whole. That outside perspective is crucial for the team as every staff member is busy editing or creating content to know how things look to the public!
Pankey is an angel. In our darkest hour he descended from the heavens, looked upon our very flawed code and righted the wrongs. He assists in ensuring our website loads as fast as possible, pages function as intended, and when things break, he fixes them correctly. Needless to say, Pankey is a wonderful human being that we love and appreciate!
Assistant Chief Executive Officer Assistant to the Chief Executive Officer
Alexia’s ability to put up with the crazy of Darth Mexican is next to none. That is why her assistance is invaluable to the brand as she ensures he stays on task and does those useless acts such as ‘sleep’, ‘eat’, and ‘take time to chill out’. Not to mention she takes the time to watch various films and review them so readers know what to spend their hard earned time and cash on! She is co-host to Dungeons and Date Nights which is a Dungeons and Dragons podcast featuring Darth Mexican and guests!
Jaclyn Cass aka Tidesiren is a fantastic cosplayer based in Colorado. She has an absolute love for all things geeky, gaming, and food! When she isn’t being a super dope cosplayer, she can usually be found running off on adventures that would give others heart attacks! In the year of 2017 she covered nine conventions both national and international for us! We’re so grateful to have her on our team to cover conventions!
Chocozumo (Photographer – AZ)
Connor aka Chocozumo is an incredible photographer from Arizona who has developed his skills from a young age. He has been there for The Geek Lyfe left, right, and center for all of our events and even helped raise money for charity during our D&D event early 2018! We’re stoked to have him help us cover more conventions before in and around Arizona!
Cheshsmiles is a cosplayer based out of California who has such a huge passion for gaming, anime, and cosplay! She can always be found running up and down convention hallways geeking out over her favorite fandoms. The great thing abut Chesh is that the moment I even think about asking for help, she appears from the shadows with all of the assistance! She gives it her all in projects!
Cobalt Cosplay is nothing short of a blessing! She not only finds time for a job, school, friends, family, and cosplay but she also helps us cover incredible conventions over in the UK! She has such a passion for Naruto that she can be found with some of the best cosplays of the characters hands down! Cobalt is solid through and through, when asked to interview a guest of a convention alone, she stepped up to the task and did fantastic despite having a Japanese Heavy Metal band as her first ever interview!
Samantha aka Geegiiee can be found online looking kawaii af as she fights with might and magic in Final Fantasy 14. When she isn’t conquering raids left and right, she is hustling to create fantastic costume after costume and showcase them at conventions up north in Canada. Geegiiee is smart, kind, hard working, wicked talented, and so much more!
Heartless Aquarius is a cosplayer local to Arizona and has a huge passion for anime and manga! This makes her the perfect person to be dedicated to the sole task of consuming all of the Japanese content we receive and give her thoughts on it! When she isn’t turning pages and watching endless hours of Japanese animation, she is creating elaborate costumes that she features at various conventions and wins awards! Check out more of her information on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
She’s tiny, but mighty… Fierce but kind… Standing in at 4’11” and holding a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communications… Taking names and kicking butt… Jessica Carlson!
