Falselies (aka Josean Rosario) is 25 year old Purto Rican that has lived stateside most of his life.
He an amazing photographer, but when he’s not shooting breathtaking photos, you might be able to find him working at IHOP part time.
He plays MMO’s and MOBAs, but on the conoles, he’s a big final fantasy fan, and of course kingdom hearts fan!
He’s currently trying attend Megacon, so if anybody wants to help him out or check out more of his work ;), check him out at https://www.facebook.com/Photogmotog
Also, shout out to the model of this shoot, Kathrina Tenorio! Great job!]]>
Nona is a 23 year old from Orlando, FL, who loves conventions! She’s been attending for about 7years, but has only just discovered her talent for building costumes in 2012. Man, she got good fast!
She works at a craft store while going to school for digital media. Most of her free time is spent working on new costumes, which often take months to complete. When she’s not working on cosplay, she enjoys spending time playing video games like World of Warcraft, Diablo 3, Pokemon, and various other Playstation or Wii games.
She’s really looking forward to Megacon 2014 where she will be debuting my newest costume, Gipsy Danger, from the movie Pacific Rim! (You have no idea how awesome that is to us! XD)
Her dream is to one be able to afford to attend Comic-Con in California and is really excited for the new game Wild Star.
So be sure to check Nona and her cosplay adventures at https://www.facebook.com/

Host and GAAM founder Ryan Thompson started the meeting by going over the goals he’d like the org to accomplish, primarily that of fostering more collaboration within the gaming community. Ryan emphasized getting out of the “island mentality” where you work alone and keep everything to yourself without getting any feedback or help. That can lead to you unveiling your game after years of hard work and realizing no one is interested or that you could’ve done this or that to make it better.
Considering the great mix of people who showed up, I would hope that doesn’t happen. While everyone had an interest in gaming, not everyone was necessarily a developer. Some focused more on art assets, UI design, marketing or game audio. Check out audio designer Michael La Manna’s epic music tracks. Whatever game genre you’re into, he’ll have something for you. If I ever take over the world, I want this to be my background music.
There’s so much potential for collaborating within the group. Other members have already suggested hosting workshops on art asset creation, attending startup weekends, and hosting our own hack-a-thons.
Things to come:
I’m super excited for what’s to come and getting to see the organization grow! Hope to see everyone plus new people at our next meeting.

And you can imagine our shock and surprise to be honored with this…
So yeah, Vanilla Ice retweeted and favorited the Ninja Rap performance (as did Serena Williams! AWESOME). So today was a good day for Ninja Rap, Nevado Karate Arts, On Guard, GAAM, and the entire universe. No exaggeration.
Oh, here’s the rest of the pics on facebook -> Go Ninja Go Ninja Go! https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.656725161037920.1073741894.396712637039175&type=1&l=038b232c62]]>
Anyways, let’s get to know Jannelle a little bit better (through this great video shot and edited by Jonathan Delrosario! :)).]]>
