Tales from the 'Verse Crew
Tales from the 'Verse Crew
Believing this was not the life for her, she left in search of wild adventure and screaming. She spent several years in Transylvania trying to get bitten by a vampire, an ambition which she sadly failed to achieve at the time, although ironically she did achieve it many years later, after she'd moved back to England and started eating garlic pizzas. Her favourite hobbies include computer science, experimental mathematics, and dressing up as a mermaid and luring sailors to their deaths. Jill is the editor and primary architect of the Signal, and the captain of this crew.
She is also an author, classical composer and has been known to write and perform in a prog rock band. For a long time, her home was a disguised as a vending machine in Victoria coach station, England. Then - disaster - a freak tornado rendered the gyroscopic stabiliser unusable. Stranded in what at the time seemed to be the twentieth century, although it later turned out to have been the twenty first, she had no choice but to settle down and try to take over the world. Doug Moran When Doug is asked "Where are you from?" he usually answers either, "Uh...," "Most recently, you mean?" or "The Northeast," which is about as specific as saying "Western Canada" or "The Western Hemisphere." The fact is, after kicking around Connecticut, New Hampshire, Long Island, and northern Virginia, the longest Doug stayed any place was the 12 years he spent in Santa Cruz, California.
His caustic sense of humor precludes saying he is a Santa Cruzan, however, so he usually says, "Uh..." With a Computer Science degree in his hot little hands and a modicum of writing ability, Doug parlayed those and an Irishman's ability with blarney into a career as a technical writer in the computer biz, which allows him to work from his current home in Austin, Texas, be with his two kids, and still get in plenty of time watching Firefly, playing with A/V software, and hitting the frisbee golf courses nearby. Doug's insanely tolerant wife--who once encouraged him to buy a sports car so as to preclude any midlife adulterating-- fluctuates between living with his weird hobbies and urging him to engage in them even more, which helps explain why he is so inordinately fond of her. Steve Poarch Steve is from the sprawling metropolis of Verbena, Alabama. He is currently a travel agent, but has "done a little of everything" including: corpse pick-up and delivery for a medical examiner's office; DJ, producer, and promotions director for several radio stations; and Online technical support/online banker. Steve plays over 10 musical instruments with various degrees of proficiency, reads anything with print on it, and swears he doesn't have an accent, dad-gummit. Mark Trulson Mark is a graphic artist with 19 years experience in the newspaper business doing everything from writing, advertisement design, page-composition, and computer system manager.
With that background, he started a graphic design company offering not only graphic design but printing and video production. Mark lives in the Midwestern United States, in the "Land of Lincoln", near a very big river. Paul Pearson Paul is a student from NSW, Australia with aspirations of being a writer and director for the big screen (yes, just like Joss) (yes, it's kinda creepy and stalker-ish). Though he's done several Eisteddfods in his youth Paul hasn't done any professional voice work for radio, podcasting, etc. Paul enjoys reading, good television and movies, basketball, walking, music and podcasts, and is ever so slightly embarrassed that he can recite the "diarrhea of an elephant" phrase in Chinese. Scott McCoy Scott McCoy has been a sci-fi geek since he was old enough to be shown what Star Trek was by his father.
He's been a computer nerd since he was 10 years old and got his first Commodore 64. Since then, he's done just a little bit of everything, from acting and singing to gaming and geeking, and just about anything that can be done with a computer. Currently, Scott lives with my wife just West of Chicago, with two cats and too many computers, CD's, books and movies to count. He was introduced to Firefly by his Joss Whedon-lovin' wife, who also introduced him to Buffy & Angel. Firefly has been the only thing that could supplant his love of Trek as the first Sci-Fi love in his life, and he's never looked back. He'll be editing Tales from the Verse from time to time, and may also do some odd jobs as needed. Dan Bodenstein At the age of thirteen, Dan began writing computer programs....
on paper. Six months later, his father traded some camera equipment for a Radio Shack TRS-80 Model 1. That move started him down his future path. Today, he is responsible for the day to day IT activities of a large Real Estate Advertising company. He got hooked on Firefly after signing up for Netflix and adding it to his queue.
While Firefly was aired, he lived in a remote area which did not have local Fox affilates on his satelite network, so he missed the show. After the first 2 episodes, he was totally hooked. As a long time Sci-fi fan, (He even built a robot at age 15), Dan knew a top quality show. Dan lives in South Florida and spends his spare time designing websites, enjoying Nature Photography, and dodging Hurricanes. Read more on Last.fm.
