[If you’re wondering about the banjo, it’s from Girls Like Robots. It’s a great game, you should consider playing it while listening to this podcast.]


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.

    Thanks for such in depth reviews. I appreciate the insight you have, and how it makes me think about different games (like GTAV or Beyond Two Souls).

      Thanks Amanda! I honestly wasn’t expecting to like GTA:Online as much as I do, but it really is a well crafted experience. If you’re into open world shenanigans I say go for it!
