Josephine is a sailor senshi by day and a ghost host by night, but really, her geeky interests encompass so much that it’s hard to list and remember. She’s been with Geeks of Color for a while writing various news pieces, reviews, and even op-eds. She’s a huge sucker for good *chef’s kiss* storytelling so D&D has taken over her life – and she would like to know what your favorite class is (hers is monk). Occasionally, she tries to dabble in cosplay when she’s not busy rewatching her favorite shows and movies on repeat. She also has a horrible habit of starting shows and never finishing them (someone help her).

Andrew J. Salazar is from California, USA and has been covering film, conventions, festivals, and more for Geeks of Color since 2018. He graduated from California State University Los Angeles last year with a degree in Television, Film, and Media studies. He aspires to use his degree as a tool in making the sphere of entertainment more accessible and welcoming to the Latinx community. When he is not writing or engaging with readers online, he is more than likely theme park hopping. He does not tolerate Lilo and Stitch slander. Lives for the lore.
