Tell us about yourself: Well I'm a full-time professional photographer, owner of Dana Harper Photography & Geek x Girls. I spent most of my time either on the computer working/editing, out shooting or watching geeky tv/movies or playing board/card games. My house is filled with geeky memorabilia and art. I have 4 cats names Six0r (she's a polydactyl), Luna, Nova & Comet. I am an unabashed sci-fi/fantasy fanatic and a science nerd. I love sci-fi TV, movies & comics and I love reading/watching popular science books/documentaries. I'm constantly quoting my fav shows and some people in the 'verse just don't frelling understand the difference between Cylons & Cybermen. You might also catch me with a beer in my hand explaining what a gamma ray burst is or trying to explain time dilation. So I wonder about the universe a lot and I also wander a lot. I love travelling the world and meeting new people. Probably why I love going to cons and photographing cosplayers so much and also why I love epic sci-fi tales of adventure and exploration.

Have you always been a geek?: Yes. Without a doubt. Although when I was younger it wasn't always fun or cool to be a geek. I was picked on, but frankly I didn't care. I've always been outgoing and different so I just kept marching to the beat of my own drum. I was quite content as a little girl to just go home, watch Star Trek or Star Wars or play Nintendo. Oh and this one time I built a Time Machine out of a cardboard box.

Geekiest thing about you?: Hmm, that's a hard question. Much of my life revolves around geeky stuff. I guess my obsessive nature, that when I find something new that I love I dive in head first, learn everything I can about it, start collecting and watching everything I can about said fandom. Or maybe it's the fact that I started Geek x Girls in the first place? Or maybe my cosplay photography obsession? My geekiest tangible things are my prized possessions, my Eleventh Doctor 1:6 Scale Limited Edition Collector Figure signed by Matt Smith, my still in the box Toy Vault Farscape Action Figures and my ever growing Funko POP! Vinyl collection.
