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.
Its time again for the SDCC interview spectacular! This year, we steal a few minutes to talk to Jane Espenson & Brad Bell (Husbands), Marissa Meyer (author: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress), Oliver Vaquer (VA: Robert Lutece, BioShock Infinite), and Lizzy Caplan, Rob Benedict, Josh Meyers, & Jordan Peele (cast of The Sidekick). [Special thanks to Peter Bogolub for the new musical bumpers!]
With snow disrupting our plans, we hold it down and chat about events of the past week including Steam news, VR headsets, free games, HBO, Community, and Avengers. Plenty of sidebar conversations and tales of shenanigans from 20+ years of friendship.
