I’m an all around fanboy and have dipped my hands in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comic Books etc.
I basically learned to read on my dad’s “Teen Titans”, “Captain America”, “X-men” and “Avengers” from the 1980s and 1970s so I am a firm George Perez and Marv Wolfman fan. I am currently reading Teen Titans, headed by Lobdell, and making Donna Troy the object of my main hero worship, depressed that she isn’t in the New 52.
I’ve been a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien since High school and have read LOTR and The Silmarillion every other year since. I’d love to visit New Zealand and take that hopelessly expensive tour of the movie scenes. I also am a fan boy of the Harry Potter series (books and movies). Sadly my fantasy reading has slumped since entering grad school so I am woefully inept in my knowledge of things fantasy.
My dad raised me on Star Trek (TNG, DS9, Voyager, Enterprise) so there’s a special place in my heart for Roddenberry and his Utopian universe. I’m not ashamed to say Voyager and Captain Janeway is my favorite series, though the reboot is definitely awesome as well. I finally saw Whedon’s FireFly and got hooked, so sad it only had two seasons, why must everything I love end??? Also, I am loving Doctor Who since I began watching it earlier this year; so far I have only seen the episodes since the reboot in 2005 but am making plans to try and get to know Doctors 1-8 in due time.
I design costumes in my spare time and am learning to sew spandex to make some of my creations come to life. Always creating and imagining when I’m not getting through my PhD classes. Message me if you’d like to chat. I’ve only met a few other gay geeks in my travels and would love to meet more. Cheers.
