Introduction

I'm 30 & work for an ebook company doing tech support & marketing. I have a degree in Women's Studies from ASU West. My passions are technology, books, and random thoughts.

Favorite websites?

Twitter.com, Bookshare.org, Audible.com, Freerice.com

Favorite movies?

I don't like to watch any one movie more than once so I don't have faves. The best movie I saw recently was After Earth.

Why do you think you're a geek?

I work for an e-book company. I'd rather spend money on a new comp or app than on shoes or clothes. I do a podcast. I tweet a lot. I read PC World for fun. I'm more likely to talk about whether or not plants have consciousness than what I did last weekend or how I'm decorating my apartment.

Who are your role models?

I mostly think role models are overrated. People are flawed. I may love certain qualities about some of them, but no one person really has it all together. I guess I'd have to choose my friend Jennica. She died of cancer when we were 18. She handled life and death with an intelegence, poise, and grace that I've not seen in anyone since. Then again, maybe I view her with nostalgia and idolize her because I didn't get to see her grow up. Perhaps if she'd reached 30 she'd now be as flawed as the rest of us? But I prefer to remember her from the perspective of an idealistic 18-y-o.

What's your Myers-Briggs type?

INFJ -and I'm loving that the group asked this question! Is it wrong that I think intuitives are slightly more evolved than other beings?
