Andrea Gellatly is captain of Team Witch Doctor on the TV Show “BattleBots.” Andrea and her husband and teammate, Mike Gellatly, founded MakeMIA Makerspace in South Florida, where they teach kids how to build their own combat robots. Andrea received her BS and MS in biomedical engineering from the University of Miami. She currently works as a research and development engineer and has been awarded several utility patents for her work in medical devices.
Caleb Kempson illustrated B is for BattleBots after his fan art caught Andrea’s attention on social media. He spent his childhood designing robots and drawing his favorites from the British robot fighting show “Robot Wars.” After starting his mechanical engineering degree, Caleb realized that he preferred drawing over engineering and decided to go back to what he enjoyed doing: fun cartoon drawings of his favorite robots – this time from Battlebots!
