I am a freelance writer and photographer from South Florida and currently based in Japan's Ibaraki prefecture. I graduated from Florida International University in 2009 (B.A. Anthropology, B.A. Asian Studies, certificates in Japanese and Chinese languages). You'll (almost) never catch me without a book, at least two cameras, a stylish pashmina and a notebook (with pens, of course) in my bag.
I am the Community Manager and a Senior Editor at toy enthusiast blog Tomopop, an Associate Editor at Japanator (check me out there for my thoughts on various anime- or Japan-related things!) and I also keep a photo- and travel-centric blog, Snapitude. I just wanted to keep things a little more organized, ya know? GeekeryDo is where I put all my other stuff. It's where I'll be blogging about all manner of nerdery, sharing links and news (on Fridays), book reviews and reactions, video game reviews and reactions, and anything else I have to share like artwork or plastic model kit building.
[Update - April 7th, 2013] I accepted a freelance gig for the blog at Quirk Books. I won't be reviewing books, but I was told I can basically write anything else book-related. Where you can see more book reviews by yours truly is at Bookalicious, where I'm supposed to contribute two a month in the YA, MG, or picture book categories. Check there often, because there's a whole team of enthusiastic reviewers posting all the time!
Besides blogging much more than any person should, I participate in podcasts, report at otaku or fan events and try to learn new things while trying to not blab on Twitter all day. All of the things I've listed I participate in around the web are also linked to on the handy dandy sidebar for your reference and perusal.
I also quite like going to the beach. It's kind of a year-round thing in Miami, and I'll sorely miss it now that I've moved to Japan. Now I've got a few more seasons than usual to worry about! But, the good news is I'm not far from the coast at all, so I'll still be getting some lovely beach weather once it warms up. I hope you'll stick around for the ride.
