Deb serves as the Convention Coordinator and Vice President for The Role Initiative, channeling her love for all things related to organization into this organization and the wonderful tabletop community.

Community – Garrett Colón

garrett.colon@theroleinitiative.org

Garrett Colón was introduced to AD&D by his godfather at the tender age of 8. Those sessions gave way to scattered experiences with 3.5e in high school, as well as jaunts with Shadowrun, Pathfinder, Mage the Awakening, Fate Core, and other RPGs. At PAX East 2013, the 5e playtest needed DMs, and Garrett, having never played the system, jumped in. This is how he lives – diving head first into his hobbies. Since then, Garrett has worked countless conventions, with his current count of over a dozen each year spanning varied genres in the US Northeast: scifi, video games, anime, tabletop, and multi-genre. When not driving to conventions, Garrett runs AL each week at his local game store in the Boston area, serves as Operations Coordinator for The Role Initiative, writes CCC for TRI and independently, and serves as a resource for the wider AL community. When not waist-deep in his gaming hobby, Garrett analyzes systems, coaches a preadolescent swim team, hikes, plays 10 instruments, reads the entirety of the internet, acts as local animal whisperer, and takes care of his gatos, Hermes and Aries.
