Compendium of obscure facts, shoe fanatic, Whovian, con·nois·seur of the arts, queen of tangents.
A perpetual nomad, Amora blew into NC from the windy city. It was clear from an early age that Amora would be exceedingly geeky. A fan of all things sci-fi Amora enjoys binge-watching geeky shows that fall within that genre. More than anything Amora loves to travel and of course, geek out with her halfling. When not geeking out, Amora runs a small business with her partner. She’s obsessed with attending sci-fi conventions, and her favorite characters to cosplay include, Valkarie, Storm, Auntie Entity (Mad Max) and Kindzi (Defiance).
Geeky Loves: Doctor Who, Stranger Things, Game of Thrones (Seasons 1-7) Outlander, Defiance, Stargate SG-1, LEXX, Mad Max, British Dramas, 80’s Music, Symphonic Metal, Sword Fighting, Historical Reenactment, Buffy, and Firefly.

Life Motto: “An unexamined life is not worth living.” – Socrates

Origin Story: Mary-Kate fell into the wonderful world of geekdom young with shows and books like Sailor Moon, Inuyasha, Wolverine and X-men comic books, Disney, Harry Potter, and of course Pokemon. A recent Raleigh transplant from San Francisco, Mary-Kate is loving exploring this area and meeting new people. She lives with her board game-loving fiancee and incredibly anxious and adorable dog (Pluto-Not sure if he is named after the planet or Disney character…I’m the not-really-evil stepmother). This Hufflepuff loves to travel, eat, and organize things. Unfortunately, this doesn’t include her home. She shares much of her love of the dorkier side of life with the elementary school students she teaches.
Geeky Loves: Netflix (Stranger Things, Dark, Black Mirror), Board Games, Quilting/Crafting/Crocheting (Anything an 80 yo woman would be into), British Television because there are less seasons usually, Neil Gaiman, Doctor Who.
Brunch Drink: Hot chocolate with a huge pile of whipped cream on top
Fictional Boyfriend: Hugh Jackman (In any role, honestly.)
Origin Story: I grew up in snowy New York where the only things to do in the winter were reading and playing video games. Nintendo/Pokémon card games and Harry Potter were my jam (House Slytherin….not sure if I should announce that haha). My husband and I moved to NC a few years ago and made Apex our home. We have 2 cats (Olivia Newton and Fig Newton) that run away at any sign of anybody new.
Geeky Loves: I really enjoy watching TV (Firefly, GOT, Westworld, anything zombie, The Great British Bake off), playing video games (Zelda:BOTW, Stardew Valley, Far Cry, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Subnautica), and cooking/crafting (cookies/jewelry making). I also play D&D with a group from NY still.
Brunch Drink of Choice: I love mimosas! Or just a sweet tea.
