There is a GEEK inside us all

The summer I was born, my sister was 17 and headed off to college, and my brother was 13, preparing to enter high school.  My parents had very busy schedules, and a lot of the “babysitting” duties fell to my brother.  He wasn’t always so pleased about it, as 13 year old boys tend to have their own ideas about how to best use their time.  So, from an extremely early age, I went wherever he wanted to go.  And when I was less than a month old, where he wanted to go was to the movie theater to see “Return of the Jedi” for the umpteenth time.  An infant in a movie theater?  Not always a good plan.  But the story goes that I was mesmerized by the movie.  My brother says that I sat propped up on his lap, and stared at the movie screen for the entire 134 minutes.  And, if you believe that, thus began my love of science-fiction.

A bio, huh?  Why is that always the hardest part of something like this?  I’m a tap dancer, a juggler, an extremely amateur photographer, a volunteer, a foodie, a word nerd, a sci-fi addict, a baseball fan and so many other things.  I spent four years of my life studying mathematical chaos theory to make a career for myself in ticket services and arts administration.

I have a tendency to speak before I think, which has caused both hilarity and heartache.  And often, I talk to no one at all, as if I’m having a conversation with myself – usually, I am.

These days, I can be found at work in Times Square, in the bleachers at New Yankee Stadium (although I wish it were OLD Yankee Stadium), or curled up at home with a book, my cat, the computer and any combination thereof.
