Here at AwesomeSauce Headquarters, we work (fairly) hard to bring the world some adventure! Between planning trips, researching routes, and, of course, eventually writing about our shenanigans, there is a lot that goes in to our overall Awesomeness. Luckily the authors, Awesome K and G-Sauce, are not alone! Let us introduce you to our dedicated team of Adventures!
Head Writer – Lead Cat Herder – CFO of Shenanigans – Director of Fantastical Operations – G Sauce (aka Saucy G, Nenner)
G Sauce has been adventuring for over 25 years, traveling the globe in search of all things Awesome. In 2001, she and Secret Agent Sam starting forming what would become the AwesomeSauce Team, eventually adding Miss Matilda Pants in 2002, Awesome K in 2012, and most recently adding Mr. Foots in 2013. Prior to becoming CFO of Shenanigans at Team AwesomeSauce, she, along with Sam and Miss Pants, earned her Bachelor Degree in Criminal Justice and Criminology from Metropolitan State College of Denver. She has worked a number of interesting jobs, everything from Dog Groomer to Probation Officer, G Sauce has done a little of everything. G Sauce is currently Head Writer for the Team, as well as being Director of Fantastical Operations, and consults regularly with Trip Coordinator, Miss Pants, on where to go and what to do next. When she is not off exploring all the world has to offer with Awesome K, G Sauce enjoys reading, fly fishing, treading water at the poker table, and all things geek/nerd/awesome related.
Awesome K began interning at AwesomeSauce Headquarters in August of 2012. After a lot of hard work, dedication, and a well deserved recommendation from then CEO Secret Agent Sam, Awesome K was officially added to the AwesomeSauce Team, finally completing the AwesomeSauce Duo. Since then, Awesome K has worked as Head Chef, Lead of Support, Writer, and has been recently named as Director of Logistical Inevitabilities (congratulations Awesome K!). In 2013, Awesome K hired Mr. Foots to manage P.R, and since then the two have been inseparable, always working together on new ideas and ways to further the AwesomeSauce goals. When Awesome K is not hard at work at AwesomeSauce Headquarters, he can be founding slinging beer at Arvada Beer Company, swinging golf clubs, flinging cards at the poker tables, and singing the songs of his peoples.
Before joining the AwesomeSauce Team in 2001, Sam was a decorated Secret Agent. While much of his past is still classified, it is rumored that he had a paw in hundreds of covert and secret cases. After retiring with honor from the Secret Service, Sam joined G-Sauce to form the first stages of AwesomeSauce. As a founding member, Sam has had many roles on the team, as well as a variety of side businesses and ventures. From Head of Security, to Sous Chef, Sam has done it all for the AwesomeSauce Team. In 2007, both he and Miss Pants earned their Bachelor of Science Degrees in Criminal Justice and Criminalisitics from Metropolitan State College in Denver, Colorado. Sam has also been the founder and CEO of a few Clubs, restaurants, and other smaller side businesses. After Miss Pants was found to be involved in an embezzling scandal, stealing from Sam’s various Clubs with attempts to run to Venezuela, Sam decided to retire from CEO-dom, and decided to focus solely on the AwesomeSauce adventures. He has taken Mr. Foots under his wing, and has helped cultivate the AwesomeSauce Team to be the success that it is today. With amble time to relax, Sam has turned his attentions to gardening, cat-bed-testing, and enjoys carpet swimming and watching television. His favorite shows include HBO’s Game of Thrones, and Netflix’s Orange is the New Black.
After defecting from the KGB, Miss Pants led a life on the run. She went deep into hiding, living with squirrels, eating off the land, and fighting for survival. Finally she was able to find asylum in a place she had previously staked out for the KGB, the AwesomeSauce Headquarters. She moved in during the fall of 2002, and quickly adapted to her new life as Trip Coordinator, Mews, and Queen of All the Things. Miss Pants is a dedicated member of the AwesomeSauce team, working on trip planning of all sorts, and can often be found meditating on maps in order to find the best routes for the Duo to travel. In recent years she has taken a more relaxed approach to life, retiring from her role as Neighborhood Watch President so that she can focus on her rigid nap routines. She still enjoys communicating with the squirrel community, attending the annual Squirrels of the World convention. She no longer plots to run to Venezuela. Or run Venezuela, thankfully.
P.R Manager – Mews – Sir Archer Funnyfoot Wobblesworth of House Fluffington (aka Archer, Mr. Foots, Sweet Beebee)
Archer is a recent member of the AwesomeSauce Adventure Team, being hired in September of 2013. Prior to joining the AwesomeSauce Team, Mr. Foots was a reckless and wild Secret Agent, but after getting his burn notice, he was forced into a very early retirement. Secret Agent Sam, being a former Agent himself, agreed to bring the young gun onto the team, after being hired as an intern by Awesome K. Though young, Mr. Foots has proven to be a versatile member of the team! Whether working hard to promote the AwesomeSauce Duo, researching social media outlets and marketing campaigns, being a one cat Ad Man, or being a mews to the writers, Mr. Foots is always ready to do whatever is needed, and is willing to put in long hours helping at the computer. When not working diligently as our P.R Manager, Mr. Foots enjoys gardening, running, and hunting bugs. He currently holds the record for Most Bugs Caught in a Single Day!
