Geek with a sprinkle of Nerd, re-discovering my geeky side has been a fun journey. Not only because with age comes the ability and choice to purchase all the cool things your little geeky soul desires but because it has helped me find a lighter side to life and of course led me to discover Geek Girl Brunch! This is an awesome group of like minded peeps that I’ve enjoyed getting to know; and now to be a part of the process of making these get togethers happen is an honor.
I’ve recently discovered an addiction to Funko Pop figurines; most likely to find me having a Geek Meltdown on “Isle 12” of either Barnes and Noble or Target!
Geeky Loves: Avid reader, watcher of TV and general enthusiast of all things: DC TV, Marvel movies. All around Disney Lover, Power Rangers (Mighty Morphing), vintage 60’s sitcoms, original Hanna-Barbera cartoons, Tinny Toons, Animaniacs, and puzzle enthusiast, Sheldon of The Big Bang Theory is one of my spirit animals. Music is my third language.
