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.

        You don’t know that Ash. You weren’t there. (We did, though.)

    This was awesome.  Listening to Aenne’s stunned silence as you talked Orcale/Java VS. Google/Android made me smile.

      That talk went on a LOT longer. Scott is a wiz with the delete button.

    I’m shocked. No one played the first two Max Payne games?
