Rated NA 50


Hi, I’m one of the founders of Nerd Appropriate and the Rated NA podcast. I like good and bad sci-fi films/tv, synthesizers, and the retrofuture. I am primarily an Xbox gamer, but also do some PC and Switch gaming as well. By day, I am a research scientist, mostly in topics related to human-computer interaction and user experience. Before all of this, fellow NA co-founder Matt and I played music together in various bands. I also used to make "comedy" videos for my high school morning news program before there was a place to post them online. Favorite Star Wars character? Admiral Ackbar. Best Bond era? Timothy Dalton (Craig a close second). Top 3 games? Let's go with System Shock 2, A Link to the Past, and Super Castlevania IV. Thanks for being a part of this labor of nerdy love with us.

    Great podcast! I am a curmudgeon about “art” topics, but I enjoyed this discussion a lot. Also, in my quick twitter checks I didnt read the twitter question encompassed more than games (my typical single-minded self). I also suppose I will have to watch The Artist. Grumble grumble…

    I mean it stood out in a crowd of “eh” movies this year as the best. If you want a really fun movie I’d say Hugo, but if you are in for a gorgeously shot, supremely acted movie, then The Artist hands down.

    By the way, thank you Matt for pointing out that I listen to the podcasts… Ash is embarrassed of me because I play Minecraft.
