Meet & Geek: Good To Be A Geek At Dragon*Con 2012

Courtesy of Dragon*Con

 

Every Labor Day weekend I migrate south, to the city of Atlanta, GA. It is my annual pilgrimage home. Once there, I congregate with thousands of other geeks from all walks of life, hobnob with celebrities and hang out with friends, old and new. This year is a bit of a working vacation, since I will be speaking on a slew of panels.

 

If you find yourself in the geek mecca of the south, feel free to find me at Dragon*Con. Below, is a list of the panels I will be on, with times and descriptions. The better to stalk find me. Don’t be afraid to come up and say “hello.” I am friendly, I promise.
