The Geekly Grind was started in September of 2015 with a pretty simple goal in mind: to be the most reliable, fun and interesting site you visit for all of your anime, video game and other geek-centric news. We might not be the only site you visit, but we definitely want you to look forward to seeing what we have new for you every day!


Jeremy, AKA “Mithrandiel” – The Man, the Mith. This Elder Millennial is a gamer, anime geek and tech enthusiast who has done freelance contributions for RPGamer, Anime News Network, Geektrum, and various other websites over the years.  Now heading up his own (small) media empire, Jeremy spends his time connecting with passionate creators across the spectrum of Geekdom!

Patrick, AKA “Archmage” (Operations Lead/Co-Founder) – Based out of the Bay Area, our co-founder and mighty web-wizard manages the nitty gritty of our hosting operations. He also lends his voice and opinions to our podcasts!

Elliot, AKA “TheJewphin” – The sultan of snark, if TheJewphin isn’t advising Mithrandiel on next steps for the site, you may find him offering his cynical twist on reviewing the latest anime or video game titles. If you’re lucky, you may catch one of his rants.

AlanV – Part of the generation of men lost to video games. Also: anime.

Sean, AKA “ThunderHeavyArm” – Born and raised by assassins, it’s no wonder that most of Sean’s games have plenty of blood and gore in them. He has a passion for games with good story or interesting twists on old mechanics. While games are his forte, he has been known to watch anime from time to time. If you ask him politely he might give you his opinion on what he’s doing.

Jonathan ‘Johnny’ Hill, AKA “Illusion” – Johnny loves two things: board games, and his mama – in that order. His collection is sure to impress any tabletop gaming fan, and when he can, he offers his insights on all manner of board games – from major releases to promising Kickstarter projects.

Ashley, AKA “Rae” – Rae’s always down to contribute video game reviews, as well as her regular “Order Up!” article that spotlights certain indie companies, trends and other musings that come to mind. Raised in the libraries of rural New York, Rae is an avid gamer, reader, and traveler who loves to experience the world through books. She has soft spots for shoujo, fantasy, and cooking dramas.

Ben Levy, AKA “Zelyhon” – A longtime friend of Mithrandiel’s, Zelyhon shares his thoughts on the latest anime, and occasionally digs through his vast Steam library to highlight games we may have missed, but definitely deserve our time.

Lance, AKA “Roguesymbiote” – I grew up on Power Rangers and animated shows like X-Men and Dragonball Z. I love binge watching shows and have developed a comic book addiction thanks to Marvel and DC films, but I’m trying to get into more indie comics now. Doesn’t matter if it’s board games, video games or D&D, I pretty much play it all.

Michelle, AKA “I.Am.No.Man.” – Fantasy and science fiction lover since basically birth, I.Am.No.Man reviews nerd culture shows like Geek and Sundry’s Critical Role and BBC’s Doctor Who. She can often be found curled up with a new Murakami book, playing board games or DnD, or binge watching hours and hours of Critical Role. New to the anime scene, I.Am.No.Man hopes to lend an outsiders point of view to the industry’s classic and popular shows.

Andrés Cooper, AKA “Lobo” – Publisher, activist, and bard extraordinaire, Lobo is always on the hunt for new tabletop and PC game content. With a passion for great stories and an eye for innovation, he reviews popular titles and hidden gems through a socially conscious lens. When not writing, he can often be found running games and singing madly with his motley D&D crew.
