Tell us about yourself: I'm kind of one of those geeks of all trades. I have been gaming for over 2 decades, and I work professionally in video game development and web development. I have played video games and pinball at a competitive level. I have been going to conventions and cosplaying for 13 years now, and attend comic book, horror, sci fi, video game, and technology conventions around the country. I am both a historical re-enactor/armored combatant with the Society for Creative Anachronisms and a pre-enactor with several post-apocalyptic groups. I play several tabletop games, including Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, Shadowrun and Cyberpunk. I have been modeling for over 6 years. I have created several websites, and work also as a professional model, stylist and costumer in Los Angeles.

Have you always been a geek?: Oh, yes. I was raised by a geek father, so it was always in my destiny. I have slowly gotten geekier as the years have gone on - I've been a gamer my whole life, picked up comic books and cosplay in high school, then tabletop, then pre-enactment and re-enactment...I don't know where I can possibly go from here.

Geekiest thing about you: Tough call, everything about me is pretty geeky – Probably my many geeky tattoos. They are a permanent part of me, after all! Almost every aspect of my life is geeky. My fulltime and part-time jobs, my fiance, my hobbies. There is never a moment in my life where I am not surrounded by fellow geeks!
