Time to meet Chelmsford’s Geek Retreat crew!
Rich is our board game-loving manager. He’s all about Star Wars, Fallout and painting miniatures. He opened Geek Retreat Chelmsford in 2020 with an aim to create an inclusive, welcoming space for everyone to come and enjoy.
Fun fact: Rich collects vintage Star Wars memorabilia… In particular, Princess Leia in Boushh disguise! Can you spot any hidden around Geek Retreat Chelmsford?
Jordan is our resident Yu-Gi-Oh! and Cardfight Vanguard fella. He’s an anime fan with a penchant for trading card games, comic books, LARPing and RPG’s.
Fun fact: Jordan once acted in a production of the Rocky Horror Picture Show alongside Tim Curry!
Dee is our Pokémon expert, and can be most often found teaching newcomers (and slaying regulars!) with their powerful water deck. They’re a big Star Wars and Marvel nut, who spends their downtime playing video games, watching anime or running epic D&D games as a Dungeon Master.
Fun fact: Dee has been cosplaying and attending conventions for almost 8 years!
Alex is our Magic: The Gathering guy and resident zombie dinosaur tamer. He’s into TCGs, Board Games (particularly the Ticket to ride franchise,) and is a fan of international films, with his favourites being Your Name and Persepolis.
Fun fact: Alex is a black belt in Karate and placed 3rd in the UK!
Katie is our tasty treat maker and TCG quick learner. She’s new to all things geek but is looking forward to learning from all our amazing customers! She’s a musical theatre performer and absolutely loves all things theatre.
Fun fact: Katie is a pro at roller skating!
Ellen is our customer service legend. In her spare time, she loves playing Doctor Who on her DS or watching the Star Wars movies. She’s awesome at tidying, and loves working with our yummy drinks and treats. We think she might secretly be a Time Lord!
Fun fact: If Ellen were a Pokémon, she’d be Pikachu!
Bucky is our comics guru and social media wrangler. They can occasionally be found in store, tending to the comics section, or unboxing TCG’s for our YouTube channel. They love comic books, movies, cartoons, video games and all things geeky! If you’ve got a comics question, Bucky is your answer.
Fun fact: Bucky used to own Dark Side Comics!
