Carlos Nieto III is of Colombian roots born and raised in Los Angeles. His artistic talent led him to a job on the Emmy-winning show “The Simpsons” and “King of the Hill” as a Layout Artist. Carlos also worked as a Visual Consultant for Disney and Universal, creating sketches and final art for set designs as well as conducting Comic Book making, Anime and Animation drawing workshops at libraries across the country.

Eamon Sheehy is a SoCal native, born and raised in Irvine and now lives in Mission Viejo with his wife. When not working at his IT job, Eamon enjoys playing table-top roleplaying games such as Dungeons & Dragons, reading, and video games. The foundation of wanting to play D&D came from one of his first jobs as an instructor at a summer camp. There he would work with children and teach them engineering concepts with LEGO® pieces. However, most of his gaming and fun pastimes would be put on hold for a few years until he finished his degree from UC Irvine. Now a graduate, he looks for new creative outlets with Dungeons & Dragons and teaches others how to become Game Masters so they can lead their own groups into awesome adventures.
Anastasia Hunter - after accidentally winning 1st place in the Master Costumer Category at the North American Science Fiction Convention in 1999 (with a brilliant Celtic group presentation), Anastasia enjoys enthusiastically dressing up at fan events all over the United States. Although she has a strong preference for original designs and hall costumes/cosplay, Anastasia has been known to occasionally moonlight as a male Tusken Raider with the 501st/Rebel Legion at local libraries and charity events. When Anastasia is not costuming, she enjoys taking photographs of fellow cosplayers and helps organize a variety of anime, pop culture, and steampunk conventions for fellow fans in the Southwest.
