Interests: Anime has been a huge interest of mine and was what got me really started to get me accepting my geek side. I read a lot as a kid, mostly fantasy like Harry Potter and LOTR, and lots of books like them. Sci-fi shows like Star Trek were actually in my life pretty early as well, watched them with my mom when I was in elementary school. My gameboy color was one of the only gaming things I owned until I was a teenager, then I got pretty heavy into console gaming, then PC. Though Iíve never banked more hours on a game than my original Pokemon Yellow cartridge. Iíve been enjoying putting together cosplays for about 4 years now, and thatís where a lot of my time goes now.

Tell us about yourself: I grew up all over Canada, being a Military kid from both sides of mom and dad. We moved around a lot, and I got to live in so many cool places and meet a lot of people. I had a slight obsession with Harry Potter over the years, and it has been a huge part of my life! I didnít really start coming into my nerdy side until I was a teenager, when stopped caring what others would think about the things that I liked and just started watching Anime and doing online RPís. I spent a lot of hours cooped up in my room RPing and watching animes in my high school days. Near the end of high school I started getting into gaming as well, mostly Halo and Fable. Which then progressed into many shooters and RPGs, progressing into the mostly PC gaming I do these days. Iíve been cosplaying for about 4 years now and have loved every step of the way. This whole hobby has been the biggest learning experience for me, and has allowed me to blossom as a person. Iím also very passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and being fit, making it a big part of my life as well. Though I enjoy staying in, watching a cartoon and working on my cosplay, thereís nothing I love more than going to a convention and seeing everyone in their amazing cosplays!

Have you always been a geek?: I really think I have been, even though I didnít want to admit it in my earlier years when I wanted to fit in so bad. Iím glad I was able to get over that and start just loving the things that interest me!

Geekiest thing about you?: Probably the amount of times Iíve read the Harry Potter series XD also my Lightning bolt tattoo.
