Roland P. Wellington
Roland was raised in Florida and attended college there. He moved out to Las Vegas in 2002 following in the footsteps of his parents, who had lived in Vegas before he was born.
He is a gamer at heart and combines his love of superheroes and gaming with the table-top miniature game Heroclix. He has traveled to all corners of the country to play Heroclix. Because of this he has met most of his close friends through this game with “little plastic men”.
From early baseball card trade shows to his first big experience at MegaCon in Orlando, he is a convention veteran. Comic conventions, game shows, Star Trek experiences, and everything nerd in between, he has traveled to them all.
An alumni of Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, he graduated with degrees in Biology and Chemistry. He was the founder of Star Trek: Rollins College, the on campus fan club. Embracing the true meaning of Star Trek, he and his crew made the student organization a multiple award winning leadership club on campus.
Outside of the nerd realm, he is a lifelong sports fan. Instilled in him since birth by his father and grandfather, he passionately follows all the Tampa Bay teams and the University of Miami.
