Tom Hyre

Director of Panel Operations
Tom Hyre is on loan to Escape Velocity from MAGFest, where he's been Director of Panels for six years, and often steps in as a discussion moderator to keep the qualified experts from wandering off-topic or degenerating into unintelligible jargon.  In real life he's a specialist in international education, and has taught at schools and universities in Afghanistan, Russia, and Peru as well as in Washington, DC, where he's currently based.  But honestly those jobs were all excuses to talk about Star Trek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer in settings where people would have to defer to his opinion.
