Yeah, I’m a geek.
I use the term “geek” as a fun, self-deprecating way to describe my nerdy enthusiasm for technology, pop culture, and various quirky interests. Going forward, this page will be your one-stop shop for all my geekiest content.
What’s the difference between a nerd and a geek?
It depends on who you ask, but generally speaking, nerds are associated with intellectual academic pursuits, and geeks are associated with over-the-top enthusiasm for certain subjects.
I’m totally both.
In school, I won trophies in national math and computer science competitions. That makes me a nerd.
Today, I have an extensive collection of different versions of the board game Clue. That makes me a geek.
Nerds and geeks have a lot in common, though. We all know what it’s like to be different, to care about things others have no interest in, and to feel like the odd one out in social situations.
But when you think about it, doesn’t that describe most of us in one way or another? Maybe we’ve all got a bit of geek in us. 🤓

Gadgets and technology
