|My SOULGEEK Self:||
I work in employment branding (marketing for employers), and while I actually really like my job, like everyone I need an escape. That's where my nerdy pastimes come in. On my way to and from work, I love to listen to fantasy and sci-fi audiobooks (Red Dwarf is a fav), which make the commute infinitely more enjoyable. My favorite things to watch are Mystery Science Theater 3000, Rifftrax riffs, The Office, Parks & Recreation, and Youtube. My favorite You-tubers are Markiplier, Game Grumps, Redlettermedia, Nostalgia Critic, Phelous, and The Cinema Snob. I also love spending time with my friends, whether it's riffing a movie, cosplaying, playing D&D, or just going out for some good food. My favorite hobby is writing, mainly fantasy fiction, although I do branch out from time to time. My dream is to make that hobby my career.
|The SoulGeek I'm Looking For:||
I'm looking for a kind man with a good sense of humor. A guy with a generally positive outlook would be great. I gravitate away from people who are constantly negative or cynical. Conversation is also important to me, and I would be very happy to find someone who likes to talk about movies, books, games, history, etc. I'm hoping that on Soul Geek I can find someone who shares some of my hobbies and interests and who can maybe introduce me to even more cool things. :) I do need to say, if you smoke cigarettes or pot (daily, sometimes, socially, etc.), I'm not the woman for you, mostly because the smell makes me gag (lovely, I know). Also, I need a guy who is not allergic to cats, as I have 2. Lastly, I don't do one-night-stands or booty calls, no matter how hot you are.
|Ideally, if I could be any character from the worlds of Sc-Fi, Horror & Fantasy I would be:||

|In a Nutshell|

|Why I love Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy, Animation, etc...||
I love sci fi and fantasy because they are like an endless playground for my imagination. The stories in those genres can be inspiring, hilarious, chilling, cathartic--and they transport me away from the more mundane aspects of reality. The more funny shows that I watch, like MST3k and Game Grumps, give me some much needed laughs. Not because my life is depressing or anything--I just love to laugh.
|Some of my SCI-FI Favorites include:||
Red Dwarf - Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers
Red Dwarf - Better Than Life
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
-The Fifth Element
-the original Star Wars trilogy (no prequels, please)
-Guardians of the Galaxy (both movies)
|Some of my FANTASY favorites include:||
As far as authors, I do like Neil Gaiman, Diana Wynne Jones, and Angela Carter, but honestly it's so hard to choose from among so many great authors and books. I just got done with the Covenant of Mirwood trilogy by Jeff Wheeler, and I thought it was wonderful! Very character-driven, and it kept me guessing. I just started the first Game of Thrones book on Audible.
I also love fantasy movies, from epic to cheesy and everything in between:
-The Lord of the Rings trilogy
-The Princess Bride
-Dungeons and Dragons (the one with Jeremy Irons)
-The Mummy and The Mummy Returns (with Brendan Fraser)
|Some of my HORROR favorites include:||
I tend not to like slasher or gross-out films (unless I'm watching a Cinema Snob, Phelous, or Redlettermedia review of one). What I do like are more creepy, eerie movies and vampires, haha. Stuff like this:
-Interview with the Vampire
|Some of my ANIMATION-ANIME favorites include:||
I'm a big fan of Disney animated movies (most of the time). My favorite Disney film of all time is the animated Beauty and the Beast. I can be pretty critical of films, but that movie is just about perfect to me. The fact that they did a live action re-imagining and changed so much of what worked so well in the animated movie... irks me, haha.
I'm also a fan of Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli films. I love Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, and Princess Mononoke most of all.
I used to consume a lot more anime and manga, but that has kind of died down now that I'm reconnecting with sci-fi and fantasy books. My favorite anime of all time is Princess Tu Tu (don't let the name fool you. This series is SOLID: beautifully animated, great character development, and NO FILLER).
I'm also a big fan of LittleKuriboh and TeamFourStar on youtube. Their abridged anime series are HILARIOUS.
|Some of my COMIC BOOK/MANGA/WEBCOMIC favorites include:||
I really enjoy reading manga by CLAMP. I love the art style, the imaginative visuals, and the story lines. They aren't as "trope-heavy" as other manga series.
|Some of my GAMING favorites include:||
I enjoy Dungeons and Dragons whenever I get to play it, but unfortunately my friends are pretty busy, so we don't get frequent opportunities to campaign together.
I don't play many videogames, but I actually really like to watch "Let's Play" videos to experience the game while studying to the craft of it, particularly the storytelling. I absolutely love watching Markiplier play horror video games because, honestly, I'm a big scaredy cat, and it's great to watch something that makes you both shriek with fright and ROFL. Game Grumps are also hilarious (I have to admit, I have a crush on Danny).
My favorite game of all time is Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.
This game is GORGEOUS, and Senua is an incredible character. So fierce and determined, yet very vulnerable and most likely schizophrenic. Senua's design and fighting style are also among of the most awesome I've ever seen. I want to make games like Senua's sacrifice.
|Some of my FILM, TV etc... SCORING favorites include:||
Half of the songs on my iPhone are from soundtracks haha! I love the music of John Williams, James Newton Howard, Howard Shore, Joe Hisaishi, and Hans Zimmer (although I've heard that Hans Zimmer uses a lot of ghost composers, which if true is pretty disappointing).
|Some of my SIGNING/AUTOGRAPH EVENT favorites include:||
My favorite signing event wasn't even really an event. I got to meet LittleKuriboh at his booth at Anime Expo, and he was as nice as can be and gave me a personalized message on the poster he signed.
|Some of my COLLECTIBLES favorites include:||
I don't have many collectibles, but I'm a sucker for novelty, nerd-humor t-shirts, sweatshirts, and hoodies. I'm trying to keep those things from dominating my closet.
|Some of my CONVENTION favorites include:||
The best part about conventions for me was cosplaying and buying a frig-ton of amazing nerd stuff and art that I didn't need from the exhibit hall. Once I was lucky enough to go to a panel with artist Amano Yoshitaka and watch him create amazing art LIVE, just with a sharpie! Before I die, I would love to go to a Nostalgia Critic panel and a TeamFourStar panel.
|Some of my COSPLAY favorites include:||
I love to cosplay with my squad. I've actually done quite a few costumes, now that I look back:
-Anthy Himemiya, "Revolutionary Girl Utena"
-Suzaku Kururugi, "Code Geass"
-Italy, "Axis Powers Hetalia"
-Hungary, "Axis Powers Hetalia"
-Yusei Fudo, "Yu-Gi-Oh"
-Lin Beifong, "Legend of Korra"
-Rey, "The Force Awakens"
Not sure what my next costume will be, but I don't intend to quit cosplaying any time soon. :)
|Some of my FAN CLUB/FAN ORGANIZATION favorites include:||
Not in any clubs or organizations as of right now, but I'd be open to joining something if it sparks my interest.
