The MoGameCon Committee

Charles and Juli Shaw


I developed a love for gaming, mainly nintendo and Computer, by the age of 5. By the age of 16 I was working in computer assembly for Schweiss Network Solutions here in St Louis MO saving money to buy myself a playstation 1. In 1998 I joined the team at the south county Funcoland, selling Nintendo and Sega games priced off those beautiful newspaper price guides. I Decided to pursue my love of gaming by opening my store, Game Trader 2, in 2014. In 2015 I decided it was time for Missouri to have its own Game Convention, usually only seen on the east and west coast. I called the best people I could think of to help me, unfortunately the were busy. These guys decided to help instead:

I have been playing games ever since I can remember. I began on the Atari and moved onto my first and favorite the NES. Ever since receiving the NES, I have played games regularly and enjoy collecting and the thrill of the hunt. Although modern games tend to take up most of my limited gaming time today, I still go back to the classics when I can. In my regular life I am employed as an attorney and use those skills to type up all that legal stuff you see on this website. I helped found MO Game Con on 2015 and have been actively involved in every step of the process since then. My role with the Con is in the vendor space and of course developing any legalese that you may see around here. My goal is to make the Con the best it can be every year.

I grew up with a brother 5yrs older than me and have had some sort of gaming console in the house since day 1. Playing the original NES with the family was a normal activity for us growing up, so I have always associated video games with family time. Later in life I found an interest in console hardware modding and started a youtube channel focusing on those interests. I've been with MO Game Con since year one and handle guest relations along with social media updates.
