Edwin Thrower

Edwin Thrower is originally from the UK and his first childhood memory is seeing Jon Pertwee in Doctor Who! This probably accounts for his lifelong love of the program. At that same time he became addicted to the original Star Trek and both Trek and Who have helped shape his life. Since coming to the US Edwin has been heavily involved in Sci Fi and Pop culture fandom. He has assisted in the running of Star Trek, Supernatural and Once Upon A Time conventions, been an interviewer and panelist at LI Who and LI Geek, and co-runner of the William Shatner Fan Club Weekend. He also volunteers at William Shatner’s Hollywood Charity Horse Show every year. In addition to his love of Sci Fi, he is an ardent follower of Shakespeare and is board president of the Capital Classics Theatre Company. In real life he has had an extensive career as a research scientist at Yale University and more recently as a Senior Medical Writer for Ashfield Healthcare Communications.
