Tell us about yourself: Throughout my life I have always been an artist, and my life definitely feels incomplete if Iím not engaged in some sort of creative outlet. For many years the most prominent of those has been professional bellydance, but cosplay has quickly become a highly important and prized part of my life. I love bringing characters to life, improving my skills through new crafting techniques, and connecting with others who share my love of various fandoms.

Have you always been a geek?: Definitely. I think of a geek as someone who unabashedly loves and pursues various interests that may be regarded as outside the norm by others. Ever since I was a kid Iíve lost myself in stories (especially fantasy, comic books, and sci fi stories), and even now I can quickly latch on to a particular story or character and become completely infatuated!

Geekiest thing about you?: This is a tough question, but I would say the geekiest thing about me is probably the sheer number of times I watch or read the stories that are my favorites. I honestly couldnít tell you how many times Iíve read and watched The Lord of the Rings books and movies. Same goes for Harry Potter, Fullmetal Alchemist (the manga and the Brotherhood anime), Avatar: The Last Airbender, various Disney films, various Marvel Entertainment films, various graphic novel collections (Neil Gaimanís Sandman, Strangers in Paradise, Y: The Last Man, Locke & Key, Uncanny X-men)Ö.etc. etc. etc.
