Head Geek Steven Ferrari was sucked in to the world of the nerd when he got his first He-Man action figure in the early 1980s, eventually finding his love of comic books with the “Death of Superman” story back in 1992. Although, he was introduced to the character as a baby, when his grandmother would read Superman comics to him. It triggered a lifelong love of the character and – inadvertently – set him along the path of newspaper journalism, a decision his bank account regrets regularly. Eventually, he expanded his horizons into other characters, which is good, because there has yet to be a really good video game based solely on Superman. The movies have been iffy, too, at least since he’s been alive. Maybe someday…

A lifelong New Yorker, Joe Marvilli has immersed himself in nerd culture for as far back as he can remember. While he loves everything from Doctor Who to Darth Vader, Buffy to Bioshock and The Martian to Marvel, his number one passion is music. His love of music started when he saw U2’s music video for “Beautiful Day” at the young age of 12. From there, he discovered Radiohead, Arcade Fire, St. Vincent and more. A gamer, a singer, a struggling guitarist and a collector of vinyl, Joe enjoys putting his thoughts down and sharing them with the world. No better place to do so than The Casual Geekery!

PJ Williams can’t quite remember a time when he wasn’t a nerd. Having a father really into Flash Gordon and a mother who was a hardcore Trekker (as she would often remark “Trekkies are what the media called us”) it was inevitable that he would devour all kinds of geeky pop culture. From a young age, he loved to take things apart and try to modify them like installing a backlight on his Game Boy Advance before Nintendo officially did. There was however an instance where he electrocuted himself and destroyed an original Xbox at the same time. He has since moved on to newer consoles and safer hobbies. In addition to gaming on his PS4, he likes sci-fi movies, B-movies, audio books, history and classic science fiction novels. He also firmly believes that anyone who thinks that there should be animosity between Star Trek and Star Wars fans, doesn’t understand the message of either. He did however once interview original Boba Fett actor Jeremy Bullock while wearing a Boba Fett hoodie. He regrets nothing.

To date, Nick Piers is the only Canadian on The Casual Geekery. He sends his work to Ferrari via dog sled couriers. Oh, and Nick is also a published author. No biggie, but you can totally read his series, The Armadillo Mysteries. THE CITY OF SMOKE & MIRRORS and THE DAME WAS A TAD POLISH is available at all fine internet book depositories (and some not so fine, like Amazon; OH SNAP!).
Nick writes a bunch of stuff on his own blog, which you can find here.
