An anime fan of over twenty-five years, Richard Neil (MoNgR3L) is an anime convention panelist who originally hails from the Midwest. With over 100 hours of convention panels under his belt, MoNgR3L has presented regularly throughout the past 6+ years across the country at cons such as Anime Weekend Atlanta, Fanime, A-Kon, and more. Specializing in content that strives to connect the audience members to the material presented, his goals are to create unique fan panels that both entertain and educate; thereby helping to expand the otaku horizons of new fans; and to keep the long-term fans engaged & excited!
When not occupied creating new convention content for his fellow anime fanatics, or catching up on his huge backlog of anime and manga (re: “pile of shame”); MoNgR3L moonlights as an aerospace engineer in the Southern California desert. You can find and connect with him via MAL, Facebook, and at www.mongr3lsmusings.wordpress.com!
