Rated NA 73


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.

    The minecraft party story is crazy. I know that woman and she is the nicest person in the world. How she handled it was amazing. The fact that she was able to still classify PAX as an amazing time is a testament to her awesome.

      Did I relay the story correctly? I basically read it third hand.

        You got it. The only thing you missed was her boyfriend is an editor at IGN, not a dev. Not really relevant to the story though.
