The Reno Officers
Origin Story: My mother was my gateway into my lifelong obsession with everything nerd/geek-related. She raised me on Star Trek, Star Wars, 80’s horror & sci-fi films like Poltergeist, Alien(s), Paul Verhoeven films, E.T., The Dark Crystal, and a ridiculous list of animation including Looney Tunes, an INSANE amount of Disney, Tom & Jerry, Popeye, not to mention a virtual lifetime of playing Nintendo…my list of geeky loves could go on forever. Not only am I obsessed with geek movies & TV, but I love video games and board games and science and technology and grammar and all those wonderful nerd hallmarks. By the time I got married as Princess Leia it was pretty much undeniable that I had an inescapable geek soul, and it’s a huge part of my identity. I’ve also been learning how to sew to improve my costuming skills. Perhaps most importantly, I am passing the geek gene on to the next generation with my young son and daughter.
Geeky Loves: Star Trek, Star Wars, Legend of Zelda, Firefly, Xena, Community, LOTR, GoT, Ray Harryhausen, Rick & Morty, Pinky & the Brain, superheroes, Disney, Fringe, The 100, Mythbusters, Neil DeGrasse Tyson/Bill Nye, nature programs, Mel Brooks, listening to movie scores, Monty Python, Avatar/Korra, Project Runway, but the list is literally endless and I’m sure I’ve forgotten so much…
Geek Obsession: Kylo Ren
Brunch Staple: Coffee & bacon
Origin Story: My first big fandom was Star Wars. Thanks to my older brother, I was introduced at a young age to it, as well as many other geeky things growing up. I also grew to love and appreciate science fiction classics, like Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, Fahrenheit 451 and Ray Bradbury’s short stories. I also love fantasy like Lord of the Rings, Narnia Chronicles and Harry Potter. Another favorite fandom is anime, which is why I took some Japanese in high school and also can never settle on a normal hair color.
Aside from nerdy stuff, I enjoy being a mom to triplet girls, and my rescued fur babies.
