Meet the Staff

The team grew a lot this last year, so we figured it was time that our readers got a proper introduction to everyone.


Pamela Punzalan is 31, otherwise known as that age where people tend to give no fucks about nothing. Pam – also summonable by invoking the names Pammu and Pammeth – loves her games, loves her smokes, and processes things through fangirlism and rage. She’s also part of the admin team of What’s a Geek. Her friends believe she is a Red Lantern. She believes she can be a wallaby whenever she wants to be.
Admin & Contributing Editor
Noey Pico is a tiny Ball of Feelings™, with a passion for music, writing, and all things geek. She has an ongoing love affair with comic books, enjoys tabletop games, and believes in faeries (she does, she does). She’s also a contributing editor at What’s a Geek because it’s the closest thing she’s got to being a jaeger pilot.
Admin & Contributing Editor
Marielle Baysa is a part time college student and full-time bookworm/fashionista/foodie/daydreamer. She likes climbing things and taking naps. Her ultimate goal in life is to be a cat.
Mia Marci
Mia Marci‘s favorite games are Xenogears, Persona 3 FES, and the Ace Attorney series. When she isn’t teaching English, she also loves Doctor Who, genre films, and is slave to her pet dog and cat.
Denice de Guzman
Denice De Guzman identifies as a geek nanny, and is constantly disappointed that real life doesn’t come with a Motherlode cheat. She writes and performs funny smut with Deus Sex Machina and puts her knowledge of mundane pop culture trivia to use with Geekfight Trivia Night. She also helps out with, and recreates friends’ houses in Sims 3 in a totally non-creepy way.

our contributors.

Anne Margaret
Carlo Rivera, teacher extraordinaire, was born in 1986, shortly after a major revolution that he claims was not inspired by his coming. He entered the Ateneo at the age of five and basically never left.

You can find him on campus, where he teaches poetry, gives terrifying exams, and corrupts the minds of impressionable freshmen. He has an AB in English literature, a minor in Philosophy, and is working on a Master’s degree in Literary and Cultural Studies. His goal is to someday become a legendary teacher.

When he’s not checking papers or writing articles for sexy people such as yourselves, he enjoys fantasy novels, video games, and playing with his cat, Baron.
Danzy photoshops things for a living while raising two dogs in the meantime. She loves horror movies, trashy television shows, and painfully spicy food. Her idea of happiness involves a faraway cabin in the woods with ten dogs and stable WiFi — the evil dead sold separately.
DC likes to bake cookies and write things - when she's not micromanaging her cities or traversing dungeons. She plays too much Team Fortress 2 and is secretly in love with John Galt. You can also check out more of her work at or hit her up on Twitter via @geekyDC.
Debby Falcon is mother to a sweet Siamese cat (Garrus Meowkarian!) and a creative designer by profession. Will play almost any game but has an irrational fear of zombie games. Leans towards MMOs, casual mobile games and tabletop games. Small eyes, big rage.
Frieda Mak titles herself as a self-proclaimed tomboy, serial casual gamer and occasional napper. Lover of games of all kinds, be it digital or not, listens to anime and video game soundtracks 90% of the time, and is eternally obsessed with a certain character known to many as Bruce Banner. Occasionally contributes to GGG when she can actually process her emotions into coherent English words.
An aspiring software developer and system administrator by day, an obsessive gamer geek by night.

When he's not busy playing on his gaming PC, he likes to spend the rest of his free time devouring podcasts and tech news articles. Weird gaming interests include truck driving simulators and heavily modded Morrowind sessions.
Jerica will soon fulfill her dream of becoming a real-life Pokémon Master. She loves true crime, reading fanfiction, and crafting. Her hair magically changes color when she’s bored (or so she wishes).
Judith is an unapologetic fangirl who doesn't need much excuse to dress up as her favorite characters. She likes to spend her time on the Internet or anywhere she can nom, preferably both at the same time.
Nicole is an extremely angry tomato who binges British TV, loves comics, and can totally sing Hedwig and The Angry Inch from memory. Has recently transformed into a rare Pokémon that can lured with hot chocolate and cookies.
Ricky has been a gamer since the beginning. He tirelessly develops himself as he believes in a sound mind in a sound body. An IT guy by profession, he currently leads his office interest games club of over 2,000 members which caters online, card, console, and tabletop games.

the editors.

Carley is an editor and very occasional contributor to GGG, when she can get off her butt and do it. She makes customized Funko pop figures for a living and can ship literally anything. Literally. Anything.
Kimi is a half English half Filipino philosophy postgrad in Ireland by day and a geek by night, who splits her writing between GGG and What's A Geek.

When she's not terrifying undergrads, she spends her time playing mono blue Magic the Gathering decks, hugging her PS4/3DS, cosplaying and crying over her husbandos and waifus in Fate/Grand Order. Determined to be a katsudon that seduces men (and women) with her mad skillz.

Known everywhere as spectrumrays.
Goes by Michael, Mike, Mikey, dude, pare, or bro. Constantly gushes about food, games, gadgets, books, movies, and shows. Sometimes writes about them, too.
Paula is a linguist, which basically means she's unemployed most of the time, so writing about random fandom (and rhyming) fills up her time. When she's not being awesome, Paula turns back into a unicorn and takes naps and stuff.
Rika comes here often to help out when she's not busy doing What A Geek things. She's also a Catmom and an Archduke of Idol Hell, so steer clear when she's going on about idols and stuff.

graphics & creatives.

Aeron is a freelance illustrator who spends her free time writing and playing video games. She loves cute things, which is interestingly juxtaposed with her love of really cool video game weapons. Her ultimate goal is to design characters. Follow her work over on her website and Tumblr.
Anna is an Interior Designer by day and potato by night, and a full-time Pug momma of one. Heck, she sounds like she’s always on a packed schedule, but she still makes sure to have ample time for pizza and gaming (because priorities). You can also catch up with her (a.k.a. WAGbot Mom) over at What’s A Geek.
Huhsmile is a Graphic Designer by day, and Graphic Designer sleeping by night.

She's out to be the most shoujo of them all.
Lee enjoys the eldritch and the adorable, and every fanart they create they try to remember not to accidentally summon the Old Ones (that’s reserved for their weekly DND sessions). Their hair tries to stay somewhere near purple. Currently breathing Critical Role and being the edgiest edgelord in Overwatch.
Rini is NOT a witch (maybe). An animation graduate with leanings on Illustration, she now customs dolls; i.e. she removes their faces and redesigns them, style or replace their hair and sew clothes for them. It is the closest she can get to feel like she is cursing people. Basically she never stopped making things. In her spare time she writes, reads, or mostly record her games to start up her Youtube channel. You can find her on Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Youtube, and Facebook as Spacedpanini.
