MEET THE TEAM: The GYPSY
The GYPSY is the Creator and Executive Director of TopCon Geek Expo. When he originally conceived the idea in July of 2014 it was originally suppose to be a one day Buy, Sell & Trade Comic Book Swap Meet that soon became so much more. By September’s show date it had become a full blown Con and has continued to grow ever since.
The GYPSY is the public face of TopCon but he works hard to make sure that his team is acknowledged at all turns. “I have an amazing team of people working with me to make TopCon a success; without them there would be no TopCon” The GYPSY further states, “My job is to keep this train rolling and make sure it stays on the track; my teams job is to put up with my insanity”, he says with a laugh.
The GYPSY has a ton of challenges he faces each year but he approaches them head on, addressing each issue and finding the solutions so that the TopCon Fans have an ever increasing rewarding and enjoyable experience. “The buck stops with me”, he says getting serious for a rare moment, “if I make a wrong decision it is no one’s fault but my own. I listen to my team but more importantly I listen to our fans, the Geek Community. At the end of the day I take all opinions into consideration and then make the hard decision.” The GYPSY sighs, “Everyone will not agree with the decisions I make but hopefully the majority of our fans will benefit from those decisions. After all in the end that is what it is about, The Fan and what we can bring to them for their entertainment and excitement.”
Next Time We Meet Debbie George TopCon’s Co-Executive Director and Secretary.
TopCon Geek Expo 2015 was not without it’s hitches. One of the biggest challenges we faced was when our reservation for the Regency Ballroom at the Ramada Downtown Topeka was lost due to a booking snafu. But with Super Cool, Super Geek ingenuity we arose to the challenge and presented TopCon, to the delight and enjoyment of our fans, on 3 levels of the Convention Center. You just can’t keep a good Geek down.
This year we do have the massive and cavernous Regency Ballroom so TopCon will be more centralized. But if a Geek knows a Geek (and trust us we know Geeks), The Regency will not contain our enthusiastic and playful Fans. We suspect Geeks will be seen in every corner of the Ramada Topeka Downtown Hotel and Convention Center during TopCon Geek Expo 2016 on September 16, 17 & 18, 2016.
