But the point is that, no matter what, I still want to be able to say, “I, a pretty girl in fabulous shoes, saved the galaxy; yes, thank you, please throw all roses right here.”

– “Saving the Galaxy in Cute Shoes” by Zoe Estrin-Grele from “Chicks Dig Gaming: A Celebration of All Things Gaming by the Women Who Love It”, Mad Norwegian Press, November 2014 

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
