About Us

Mighty Monkey Corporation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational corporation dedicated to encouraging an interest in and appreciation of Science, Technology, and the Arts by creating awareness of, and appreciation for, popular culture art forms, primarily through the presentation of conventions and events that provide opportunities for participation in the community. The Corporation was formed for the charitable purpose of preserving and showcasing contemporary cultural elements depicted, while being a driving force for equality, inclusion, diversity, cooperation and public service in our communities.

Mighty Monkey Corporation is staffed by a dedicated group of educators, artists, technologists and public servants from throughout the Western and Central New York regions, dedicated to being an ongoing part of the community and ensuring a place for all regardless of gender, orientation, disability, race, age or religion. All money raised, whether through event ticket sales, sponsorship, or fundraising, is used for our annual convention and our year round activities in the community. We are a 100% volunteer run organization. 

 
Hi, I am Simi Anne Hensiletail and yes I am THE MIGHTY MONKEY of Mighty Monkey Corporation.  

 

I am 12 years old,  I love comic books, exploring and my family.  I dislike bullies, brussel sprouts and scary movies. I am a natural gymnast and get straight A’s in science at the Jane Goodall Middle School.  

 

Born and raised in Rochester, my favorite things are: The Beatles, The Incredibles,  Imagine Dragons, Star Wars (I dream of one day flying the Millenium Falcon), Chronicles of Narnia, and Comic Cons!

Speaking of Comic Cons I have Cosplayed as: Super Girl, Wonder Woman, Han Solo and “Combat Ready” Boo.  One Day I hope to Cosplay as Beast from X-Men--He’s My Fav!!

The comics I follow are Ms. Marvel, Teen Titans and X-Men  (sigh Beast is Amazing)

There is a fine line between genius and crazy… I like to use that line as a jump rope. I’ve been a Doctor Who fan longer than a lot of you have been alive. I can quote the original Star Wars nearly verbatim; and have an extensive Dungeons & Dragons library and comic book collection. Needless to say, my Geek Credentials are in excellent order.

What’s my job in all this? Making sure you’re having a great time and that you get the chance to feel like you’re part of something amazing. So let’s saddle up and let your freak flag fly!

Tanya Metras - Talent Coordinator - tanya@fc3roc.org

I am a huge sci-fi and fantasy fan, loving shows like Firefly, Doctor Who, Stargate 1, Star Trek, and numerous others. According to the students I teach, I am a geek or a nerd, and very proud of it. I play Dungeons and Dragons several times a week.
I took on this endeavor to help bring an amazing experience to the Flower City. My partners and I are hoping that everyone who attends has that amazing experience and will be looking forward to what the future entails.

 
Brian Burke - Logistics Coordinator - brian@fc3roc.org

Ultimate nerd and co-host of FC3! Looking forward to fun and shenanigans with fans of wrestling, Star Wars, Supernatural, all cosplayers, Bronies, Potterheads, Browncoats, Ringers, Trekkies and especially Whovians! (Okay I guess Twihards can be fun too). See you at the con!

 
Deanna Schulmerich - Media Coordinator - deanna@fc3roc.org

Public Relations and Marketing Director

My geek passions are few but they run deep: Star Wars, Star Trek, Batman, LOTR and cartoons. And I really love when my geek passions cross over to my sports passions (football, racing, hockey and baseball) and make me think about what unique memorabilia I should add next to the collection.  I like Dungeons and Dragons and its ability to let players create characters, worlds and creatures from their imaginations. I love the different creative processes artists and writers use and am fascinated in watching them create their pieces.
