Introduce yourself. What are some things you geek out for?: Being a mechanical engineering student I love everything making and 3D printing related. I love it so much I started Sci Chic, a company that makes customizable science inspired 3D printed and laser cut jewelry! I recently released some video game controller inspired necklaces as well. You can find more at Scichic.com.
I am also a cosplayer and started incorporating 3D printing into my cosplayers. My most well known cosplayers are Kim Possible and Ms. Frizzle.
On top of that, I am a huge fan of Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Hamilton, Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson.
What platform(s) do you play? What games do you enjoy?: I am more of a PC Gamer. My favorite game is definitely Minecraft because of the freedom the game provides. I also enjoy Team Fortress 2 as a stress reliever.
What words of advice would you give to other fellow geeks?: When you find the thing you love, do not let it go! Being a geek can be so much fun and if memorizing all the lyrics to "Cabinet Battle #1" from Hamilton or getting first in Rainbow Road makes you happy, have fun with it!
