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, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Supernatural, cosplay/costumes, superhero movies, Queen of the Damned, Animorphs (yes, STILL)

Origin Story: Kuniqua was born believing in a world of fantasy. She played her earlier days away as a Kung Fu master, a Ninja turtle, roaming Eureka’s Castle, reading comic books, and searching for Sesame Street! Training and honing in on her inner Geek Girl, she quickly rose in the ranks. She entered her high school days an Anime girl. Having discovered anime through a relative she became eager to learn more. This brought out an overwhelming love for Goku, Vampire Hunter D, and regular wishing that she had Moon Prism Powers. But her obsession didn’t stop there…OH NO…there was only a couple of things that rivaled her love for anime and those things were boy bands like NSYNC, Backstreet boys, and Immature, and 4 green lovable turtles who just so happen to know a few special skills! Ah, those were the days! Today she is a talented, artsy, geeky ball of AWESOMENESS vowing to help spread the geek love to everyone around the world!! She spends her days creating awesome new handmade geeky items, being a Youtube personality with the “Geeks Are Easy” channel, stealing a few moments to play Resident Evil or Gears of War, and plotting to develop her own Geek Empire!!!
