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 Nerd Machine is now hosting a series of special panels right outside the walls of the convention center. The spectacular thing about The Nerd Machine’s panels is that they’re limited to 250 people (which is incredibly small by Comic Con’s standards), and your ENTIRE 20 dollar donation goes to charity.
Over the weekend, we speculate wildly about Valve’s big announcements. Matt talks about The Expanse, an awesome book series. Scott and Ash talk difficult throwback platforming with Volgarr the Viking. Ash plays a little GTA V, and Hilary talks writer’s club and watches Sleepy Hallow. We also recap our Legend of Dungeon contest with our NAQOTW. Finally, nerd sports. Pound-tag, nerd appropriate.
