My name is Elizabeth, I'm a 23 year old geek that is too socially awkward to randomly talk to people and make friends that way. I just recently moved to Chi & would love to explore the city & would prefer to do so with fellow Geeks :)

What are your geeky obsessions

Current: Orange is the New Black, Martial Arts, RuPaul's Drag Race. All time: LoTR Star Wars Martial Arts Dragons Video Games (Mortal Kombat is my childhood friend) Books (although I wish I still read as much as I used to) Writing Music (from traditional Mexican music to Baby got back to Beethoven to RuPaul). Tattoos.

Who is your favorite Author? Book? Movie? Game?

Nick Hornby is by far my favorite author but I also love Neil Gaiman, Tolkien, JK Rowling (I learned English by reading Harry Potter!). My favorite movie used to be Kill Bill Vol. 2 but as I've gotten older, Lord of the Rings (Fellowship) is now my #1, it honestly gets me through life when I feel stuck. I also love Pulp Fiction, The Matrix, Gladiator, and (of course) STAR WARS. I also love Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, and My Neighbor Totoro. Game wise, I love Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Skyrim (although I haven't gotten the chance to play it), Shadow of the Colossus, God of War.

Who are your role models?

Socrates, Samwise Gamgee, Chun-Li, Beatrix Kiddo, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Tanooki Mario, and Gina Carano.

What kinds of locations would you like to have a meetup?

I live in East Rogers Park, I'm ok with meeting anywhere that the train can take me.

Random geek fact about you?

I have a Totoro tattoo :)
