Darth Mexican has been a geek for 24+ years. His interests include Anime, Cosplay, Comic Books, Kung Fu films, Video Games and Table Top Gaming. With strong character traits such as optimism and ambition, it’s hardly a surprise that Darth Mexican decided to create a blog centered around Geek Culture that kept the community updated on all things they care for. However, he knew that he could not possibly tackle this beast by himself and recruited Spocktopus to his cause. Darth Mexican loves his team, this page, and those that follow it.
Elysa AKA Spocktopus (Vice Presidente/Unboxing Video/Writer/Giveaway Coordinator)
2nd in command for Starship Geek Lyfe, Spocktopus is awesome incarnate. She loves all things geeky and has no problem letting the world know. Checking her bank account, you may be surprised by just how much of her finances goes to video games, various geeky box services, anime, manga, seasons of TV shows and so much more. Her passion far exceeds just being a spectator though as she actively cosplays, making crafts for different fandoms and even gifts for fellow Geek Lyfe fans for giveaways!

Jessie Velasco AKA Coach (Editor)
Coach is always there to help out writers with their articles when they need it. Sometimes it’ll be minor fixes and other times there is a mile long list but Coach always puts his best foot forward. We may have caused him to drink or smoke but I know somewhere deep down in Coach’s heart, he loves us!
Tony AKA Powerforce(Writer/Unboxing Video)
Tony AKA Powerforce is the master of playing Fox on Super Smash Bros, he loves him some JRPGs and can not get enough of indie games. Rumor has it that he is actually creating his own game! He is a solid guy in real life and will slit your throat in a table top RPG. Great guy! Loves dogs!

Tanner AKA Mr. Cinester (Writer/Video Editor)
Huge Marvel fan that has won almost every comic book debate with Darth Mexican. Loves every aspect of film making to the point where he spends a majority of his free time either as a freelance editor or on set for indie films helping in any way he can. A geek in every sense who turns his passions into his hobbies and works endlessly to one day live solely off of his projects.
Casey AKA Red Shirt(Podcast)
Red Shirt is one of the only Red Shirts to survive more than one mission planet side due to getting horribly lost from his group. When he returned, the entire crew was dead. Now he fills his time doing podcast episodes with Zombieboi. He has met the Doctor and had a big mac with him in his Tardis but had no idea. Han Solo once picked him up and used him to deliver an illegal spice package to a client. The mission had a 87% death rate, he walked out alive due to getting locked in a bathroom stall with the client and delivered the package while also being the midwife to a glorious alien birth.
The man. The myth. The legend. Tales are told far and wide of how good of friends Darth Mexican and Hesch are, stretching back all the way to World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade. They have fought demons, liches, and so much more. Hesch is an elitist gamer who puts his blood, sweat, and tears into gaming until he gets the results he wants.(Seriously, you need to check out his Minecraft server, it is intense.) We’re glad to have him on the team as one of our main writers!
My money’s in that office, right? If she start giving me some bullshit about it ain’t there, and we got to go someplace else and get it, I’m gonna shoot you in the head then and there. Then I’m gonna shoot that bitch in the kneecaps, find out where my goddamn money is. She gonna tell me too. Hey, look at me when I’m talking to you, motherfucker. You listen: we go in there, and that nigga Winston or anybody else is in there, you the first motherfucker to get shot. You understand?
Gumbercules (Artist/Let’s Player)
Now a level 27 Bard, Gumbercules has mastered the art of becoming mediocre in all forms of art. He was born to riches, enjoying the many splendor a San Jose, CA trailer park had to offer. In the 5th grade, he found his love for sketching through copying pictures of Dragonball Z. He eventually moved on to copying imagines from comics and, from there, drawing freehand. He can be great company to have around, just don’t get him started on Breaking Bad or the Arkham game series. Seriously. If you have somewhere to be soon, don’t do it.
William AKA Six Zero(Writer)
Plays in a metal band. Works forty hours a week. Writes for Geek Lyfe. Plays all the video games. You can say Six Zero is winning at life.
Ashley AKA Ashtastic(Writer)
Ashley is as short as they come yet packs a whole lot of personality! She is incredibly kind, creative, and outgoing! Her knowledge of comic books very well might trump everyone elses which makes her an easy choice for being a writer and comic book reviewer for Geek Lyfe! When she isn’t writing awesome article or taking care of her kids she is working hard at products for her side business: Sew Ashtastic!

AZ Shots Fired Photography
Carlos AKA Ghostinsnow(Photographer)
One of the most down to earth human beings you could ever meet. He might be brimming with talent, could tell such side splitting jokes while also dropping some insanely good advice but stay so calm and cool. he has taken a number of photos for Geek Lyfe and cosplayers love his work!
Chris AKA Garbage Truck(Photographer)
Chris, just like Carlos and Mauro, is very talented as well but unlike Carlos, Chris is not down to earth whatsoever. Chris is an optimist who always sees the best in people and refuses to look on the downside of any situation, no matter how dire. He is easy to laugh and gives his all to everything he does, making friend swith him is as easy as breathing and is always amazing to work with!
Mauro AKA Trekking Geek(Photographer)
Mauro, just like Carlos and Chris, is ridiculously good looking and knows it. Mixing such high charisma scores with being a talented photography wrecks the ovaries of women far and wide. Yet, he never ever throws it in the face of any one he meets and is always down to grab a beer and hang out. He goes above and beyond for everyone he can and has a huge passion for photography.
