Erin Laue

I live in Baltimore, Maryland, and have family nearby, as well as in Colorado, Oregon and Washington State. My husband and I just bought and built a Ryan Homes townhouse, and will be moved in by January 2011. To sum me up, I would say I am a cheerful optimist, a devout atheist, an doting wife, a hard-working employee at my job and a procrastinating layabout at home, an animal lover, a manga lover, and a food lover. I enjoy people with a sense of humor, and do not enjoy people who are selfish. I'm hoping to reconnect with some old friends and perhaps make some new ones!

Sean Lauer

I'm a gamer, I play almost all kinds of games, except for sport related ones, but RPGs are my favorite genre, and BioWare is my favorite company, I don't play on 360 or PS3 because the Wii is awesome and PC is more powerful than the other 2. If you call me a nerd for being a gamer, then thank you, because I know I know a lot about technology, of course not as much as professionals, though :P

Nurtured on anime classics from the tender age of Star Blazers, et al, this reclusive fanboy-turned-voice actor/writer/ADR director/flake extraordinaire spent more years than he cares to remember in what might charitably be described as freefall before landing, mostly by accident, smack dab on the industry of his dreams. To this day, some believe the small crater made by the impact remains the source of his power.

The Geek Comedy Tour

The Geek Comedy Tour is a collective of the funniest stand-up comedians from the Washington DC area. Each one is an experienced comic, having performed at bars, clubs, and colleges all over the East Coast. Telling their normal jokes to normal audiences but all of that was about to change.

There was something amiss. For you see, they were all gigantic dorks, and comedy club crowds don’t fully appreciate jokes about comic books, anime, and video games. So, they’ve decided to let their freak flag fly, form together, and bring their geek jokes to the horde that needs them most.

While still a young college student and part-time hacker in 1998, Steve got his first job at an anime company as a digital animator. It was a dream come true for any fan who grew up on anime to be working somewhere in the industry. After slaving away through 80 hour work weeks and one really bad 100 hour work week where he started hallucinating from being awake too long, Steve called it quits and went back to Riverside where he got his B.A. in Creative Writing. Stay in school, kids!
