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.
We’re joined by Harmonix product manager, Jessa Brezinski, to talk a little Dance Central: Spotlight, and Disney’s Fantasia: Music Evolved. We also give our first impressions of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and bring back a long-awaited classic, the Netflix game!
The gang welcomes the voice behind Bioshock Infinite’s Elizabeth, the multi-talented Courtnee Draper, to the show. We talk about the balance between acting and law school, the passion that went into the realization of Elizabeth.
