Riot-Nerd was born as a creative outlet for wife and husband team of semi-professional wedding/concert photographer Megan Hawkey and her (sometimes annoyingly) verbose husband Kevin. Strongly opinionated and fiercely independent, we love what we like and hate what we don’t, though we try to approach everything with the most open mind possible. We voraciously consume all media, be it music, film, games or collectibles, and attend as many live performances of all genres as we can here in our home base of Philadelphia.
Kevin Hawkey is the co-founder, head writer and editor of Riot-Nerd. He enjoys Fighting Games, Metal, Marvel, Horror and all the weird shit in between. A lifelong Philadelphian just as comfortable in a circle pit at Underground Arts as he is drooling over the new Hot Toys figures at Brave New Worlds, Kevin’s idiosyncratic sensibility gives this site it’s unique dichotomy between “riot” and “nerd”.
Megan Hawkey is the co-founder, promoter, marketer and overall business mastermind behind Riot-Nerd. She is a 33-year-old concert and wedding photographer. A well-travelled Navy brat, she now lives in Fishtown with her supportive husband and their 2 rescued Pitbull mixes. She has a love of 90’s music and a weird appreciation for pop rock.
