Joey Gates

Joey Gates is a 28 year old small business owner born and raised in Central New York. Growing up on all things nerdy, his hobby evolved into his career at an early age. Having been in retail for over 15 years and traveling to pop culture events for just as long, he’s gained experience in event planning and has learned a lot about the collecting world. Nowadays he can be found organizing and consulting on a number of events across the Northeast; or you can find him in-person at a variety of shows all over the U.S. as a vendor, consultant, and/or just as an attendee.
