Who We Are
Indy PopCon is the culmination of the ambition of a group of pop culture enthusiasts from Indianapolis (and slightly beyond). We recognized that Indy didn’t have a true convention that covered all aspects of pop culture, and we are filling that void with a convention that celebrates pop culture diversity.
We are attempting to bring the most well-rounded convention experience Indy has ever seen, and we’re going to have a whole lot of fun doing it.
Over the next few years, Bryan took comic book collecting to a level that would make a hoarder cringe. During college, and having no room to walk around his apartment, he created a site that would be later known to the rest of the comic book community as ComicsPriceGuide.com where one could manage such a collection with ease. Although this did help with the current situation of the comics, he didn’t stop there.
Bryan branched out to collecting many more diverse items that would again take every bit of free room in his home. If it were not for his wife and her ability to make sure everything has a place, he would not have his basement mancave, or as his wife calls it… “The place I don’t visit”. Bryan marveled at everything in this mancave and had a dream… “What if all people could come see my basement?”, this dream didn’t sit well with his wife. So he had another dream… a dream that would allow his love for pop culture to be available to anyone who craved it, and with PopCon… his dreams will become a reality. So, to Bryan’s mom and wife… we thank you.
If we were to list all the individual items on Carl’s Pop Culture resume, Netflix would drop to standard definition, Facebook would hiccup, and Nasdaq would quit trading (don’t blame us, we sent a memo when we tried to post it all the first time), so we will leave it at that.
His PopCon duties place a whip firmly in hand making sure everything is getting done and that everyone has the support they need. Carl is our Spartacus, but hopefully doesn’t die at the end of the season.
When I’m not grinding away in preparation of Indy PopCon, I’m the Director of Client Services at SmartFile. Off the clock, I grow my expertise on comic statues and collectables. My Netflix queue is full of sci-fi and action movies, and I never miss an episode of Sons of Anarchy or Duck Dynasty.
