Meet the Verbal Ink Staff


Alec Wetherington

The Goldheart Mountaintop Queen Directory
Alec hails from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. He thinks that in a perfect world, he would have become an accordion virtuoso, but in the meantime he plays a surprisingly mean ukulele. He finds that life’s true joys are the simple ones – coffee, learning, and staunchly defending the ’90s as America’s cultural peak.


Geoffrey Johnson

Carbon-Based Lifeform
A Phoenix native, Geoffrey traded the Arizona desert for the California sun. He currently resides in Echo Park and claims that there is no other place in LA he’d rather be. Rather than fighting the brutal rush hour traffic on the 10, the 110, and the 101, he prefers to take the bus or ride his bike. Geoffrey plays in a couple of bands, checks out as many concerts and standup comedy shows as possible, enjoys the exotic sounds of BBC news radio reports, and firmly believes that space is the place.


Justin Vaughan

The Protein Shake Guy
Justin is from the sweet fields of North Carolina. He has a diverse taste in music and movies, and loves running cross-country, fencing and working out. Although he claims he’s not very good, he sometimes likes to grab a canvas and paintbrush and go to work. He tries to smile often and makes sure to laugh every day because it’s good for the heart, mind, and soul.


Armando Reif

French Fry Prodigy
Armando comes from Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca. After moving to Santa Monica, he quickly learned English from Looney Tunes reruns and developed a strong addiction to french fries. When not on a harrowing mission with the Verbal Ink team to save the world from evil domination, Armando likes to spend his free time surfing, snowboarding, rock climbing, and camping.
