The Board of Directors is made up of the President, Vice President, Treasurer, Director of Communications, Secretary, Chief of Technology and Ombudsman. These individuals volunteer their time to complete much of the administrative duties to facilitate a healthy collection of interactive games.
The Board of Directors deal with the day to day operations of the nonprofit corporate entity known as Underground Theater, Inc. They are responsible for setting rules and policies for the organization, creating administrator positions, appointing administrators and facilitating communication across the entire organization. The Board of Directors is also responsible for final determinations in disciplinary issues that escalate beyond the Ombudsman.
Board of Directors
PRESIDENT Jennifer Mims graduated from Guilford College with two degrees in computers and one in forensic science. During the day, she is a programmer for a large financial institution where she is known as “The Bug Master”; by night, she gets her geek on. Jenn started role-playing in 1998 and hasn’t stopped since. She has been both a player and a storyteller for many games, including troupe and convention style games.
VICE PRESIDENT Mike Rilee began his LARP career in 1998 with Vampire: The Masquerade, and has since had extensive experience as both a player and storyteller in the World of Darkness, running chronicle and convention games and events, and founding two gaming troupes. He has a B.S. in Business Management from Guilford College.
DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS Bill Vollmer has been a fan of the World of Darkness overall for about 2 decades and has created, hosted, and run multiple troupe games in the past as a Storyteller and Coordinator. Bill loves games, all forms of games from the simple board games to electronic and every possible shade in between. Currently, Bills day job is the delivery of smiles within his local food industry. When not serving up the happy with a side of marinara sauce, Bill delves into one of several projects involving UT LARP, Business Management, Virtual Worlds, Graphic Design, his Daughter, Family, and Friends.
OMBUDSMAN Andy Humble has been LARPing since the early 1990s and has a long background with many of the LARPing organizations that exist today. He has been both a storyteller and a player, as well as a devoted fan of White Wolf. He currently works as a human resources project manager for a major technology company and looks forward to assisting and helping make Underground Theater “one of the best orgs he has had the privilege of being a member of.”
SECRETARY Kyle Anderson is a native Washingtonian, he acquired a taste for role-playing games before he could roll double digits. Inspired by his supportive family, he gained an interest in supporting the community. Inspired by regular rainfall, he gained an interest in coding and modding. After a stint in various escalating educational joints, he dipped his skills into a selection of odd jobs before becoming the next generation within a family business. In this, he acted as an administrator with many metaphorical and a couple of literal hats. When he isn’t enjoying plot, he can often be found appreciating food, debating about starting yet another efficiency project, and spoiling his favorite companions.
CHIEF OF TECHNOLOGY Andrew Sayman has been pretending to be a vampire for far too long and has LARPed for just a bit less time than that. His entire life has revolved around gaming, either personally or professionally. As a long time member of various Vampire LARPing organizations, he has managed multiple chronicles, games and conventions. As a long time computer nerd, he has worked various IT and programming jobs in the video games and computer industry.
