Brian Broekemeier moonlights as managing editor for Empire Comic Press, but his day job entails drinking copious amounts of energized water while managing a group of spirited employees. Brian calls Sioux Falls home, where he also lives with his wife, three kids, two robots, pet fish, and several tribbles. He has an entrepreneurial spirit, with several projects under his belt, including the famed SiouxperCon (your friendly, neighborhood nerd convention). Brian's proudest moment was winning the Judges' Choice award in a local cosplay contest in 2015, as the spitting image of Star Trek: The Next Generation's Commander William T. Riker. He also really enjoys being married and having kids. And soccer.
