Maia Barnett (she/her) – Accountant

Maia Barnett is a New York native living in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado with her partner and dogs. When she isn’t listening to podcasts while hiking in the wilds, she’s working as a business manager for a boutique accounting firm and pursing creative projects such as metal casting, photography, and other creative outlets.  Her educational background (Pratt Institute), freelance experience in photography, and professional experience in accounting gives her a deep understanding of the many trials and tribulations creatives face both creatively and financially.

Scarlett Ross – Contract Administrator

Ciaran Roberts (she/they) – Lead Twitch Moderator

Ciaran lives in the not-so-wilds of Yorkshire with a very yappy dog. She works as a professional zombie wrangler/producer for a video game company, which is hilarious because she is deathly afraid of zombies. In her free time, she plays video games, embarks on various creative projects (look, she will totally finish a project eventually), and writes fiction. Likes decorating cakes to look like things from whatever piece of media she’s into at the moment.

Jenni Hunt – Twitch Moderator

Wendy Reynolds (she/her) – Twitch Moderator

Wendy Reynolds lives in York UK with her husband and a varying complement of guinea pigs.  She works as a Further Education funding and data consultant (which mostly involves rummaging around in databases and complaining bitterly about the mess) to fund her hobbies of reading, sinking thousands of hours into computer games, and crocheting cunning little outfits for sourdough starters.  She only recently discovered the exciting world of podcasts, Twitch streaming, and red-stringing on Discord servers, and has gleefully plunged feet-first into all three.  She lurks on Twitter as @Wendles1967.

Jax is a transgender guy who loves advocating for fellow trans and questioning folks. His current focus is a non-profit Lost-N-Found, which supports homeless transgender youth. He’s on Twitter and Instagram as @g4tisss & @JaxonHealy on Twitch and TikTok.
