Meet the Staff

Need to reach us? Email info@tgifemslash.com

The members of the TGIF/F staff bring a wealth of knowledge and experience about femslash fandom and fan conventions big and small. We worked together for years on FaberryCon and brought those great working relationships to this new project in 2015. The amazing sense of family we built there is what inspired us to create a larger, more integrated safe space for the femslash community as a whole.


Apple
Outreach, Accessibility

As an avid femslasher, Apple started with Sailor Moon, Xena: Warrior Princess and Star Trek: Voyager. Now that she’s technically an adult, not much has changed. She is almost always watching cartoons and sci fi/fantasy shows, and really, REALLY loves Korrasami. (No, really. You should see her engagement photos.)

As a poly gaysian, Apple has a lot to say about a lot of things and has approximate knowledge of many things. She loves to have conversations with just about anyone about almost anything.

John
Logistics, Finance

After attending dozens of other cons, John started FaberryCon in 2012, hoping to create the in-person community he was seeking from an amazing online fandom.

He loves hugs, poker, vidding, spreadsheets, and keeping up with a dozen shows at a time. John longs for [great? any?] representation of transguys in mainstream media and wishes it would hurry the hell up already.

John is also the 3-time undefeated champion of Buffy Jeopardy at DragonCon, if you want to throw down sometime.

Kayla
Marketing, Web, Slack

Kayla has been attending cons for over a decade, and has been active in the Sailor Moon, Harry Potter, Wicked, Glee, Carmilla, Agent Carter, She-ra, and Supergirl fandoms.

Kayla is one of those rumored but rarely encountered designer/developer cryptids. Rumors say, though rarely seen, occasionally on clear dark nights you can hear them... faintly... cursing in the distance at their monitor from their cave.

Though easily startled, casually mention your love for Katie McGrath and you'll likely find yourself initiated as part of this crypid's enrichment team.

Kristine
Fundraising

Kristine has been in fandom for over a decade, finally emerging from the shadows with Glee. She then proceeded to write ALL THE WORDS (well, 1.2 million of them) in her massive Faberry fanfiction trilogy and discovered a love of conventions with FaberryCon.

On staff there, she became indispensable as a renaissance woman juggling a dozen different tasks. It is possible Kristine is actually Tatiana Maslany, considering how she seems to be everywhere at once taking care of business and helping people.

Leah
Programming

Before discovering small cons, Leah attended many a New York Comic Con and Harry Potter academic symposium. She started a career in writing with some truly mortifying self-insert Dragonball Z fanfic at age 12, and has just graduated with an MFA in Dramatic Writing for submitting a gay Disney princess movie as her thesis film, which only proves that you really can do anything if you try hard and believe in yourself.

An enthusiastic and lifelong fandom member, she is particularly partial to the Starses War and Trek, comic books, Broadway musicals, and anything else that would get you labeled a nerd in middle school.

Pooh
Hospitality, Fundraising

Pooh has been active in various fandoms for over eighteen years, has served as an event coordinator to arrange meet and greets, small scale conventions, carnivals and fairs, and is an experienced board moderator consultant with both MediaBlvd and Fan Forum.

She is a skilled fundraiser and has a true passion for hospitality. While she may be known as "Con Mom" to many, she's also the proud mother of three and grandmother of two.

Whit
Outreach, Party Rooms

A longtime Tumblr lurker, Whit was drawn into fandom with Glee and never looked back. Over the last decade, she’s gotten into more fandoms (Black Lightning, The Bold Type, Supergirl) and is on a mission to comment on as many fanfics as humanly possible.

A massive fan of sports (talk to her about football, tennis, and basketball!!), books, food - it’s creation and consumption, and videogames she played as a child. Also, she lives on Twitter, and doesn’t know how to escape it.
