DOMINIQUE

Life-long blerd, former teacher, current Data Manager, lover of the strangeIMG_3889
 
Origin Story: Dom is the second-born of the House of the Seven Sisters (her dad actually came up with that name), and thinks of being a geek as being unapologetically passionate about the things you love.  Her childhood was spent traveling the globe as the Air Force took her parents from country to country, and it was that experience of travel that launched her sense of wonder.  It’s no big surprise that being a huge traveller inspires a love of exploring fictional worlds…Harry Potter was her first step into the never-ending realm of possibility that is sci-fi/fantasy.  From there, she found herself loving anything that tells the human experience through things that are decidedly NOT human, and that has lasted to the present day.  She now spends her days in New Orleans, where being an educator allows her to connect curiosity and geekiness for awesome kids all over the city.

Geeky Top Ten(in no particular order)  Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, A Song of Ice and Fire, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Supernatural, The Walking Dead, Queen of the Damned, Animorphs (yes, STILL)

ROBYN

Origin StoryEven though she was always a weird and loud child, Robyn didn’t discover just how geeky she was until junior high, when she accidentally stumbled upon the series premiere of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Despite many years of tryingRobyn to hide her geekiness,she worked really hard to be “cool.” (It didn’t go so well). Her love for all things musical theater and Harry Potter helped her brave her high school years. Attending the University of California, Irvine inspired her to purchase a Disneyland pass, and a new obsession was born. Moving to New Orleans has been the biggest adventure of her life, and when she is not saving the lives of children, she is binge watching Netflix.
