Kyle, Editor-in-Chief: email@example.com
“I think, therefore, I am – a nerd. Nerd up!”
Kyle, a U.S. Navy brat who’s traveled the world on planes and ships, is a Philosophy graduate who eventually discovered there weren’t too many job postings for “Philosophers” – if any at all. Fortunately, Lady Luck gave him a sweet gig as a radio DJ and TV host for a nationally syndicated tech show. When he isn’t on-air playing music and spreading the “Nerd Word” on TV, Kyle spends his waking and sleeping hours making Nerdles a dream come true for him and fellow nerds worldwide. He’s also a media and gadget junkie so check out Kyle’s philosophical wordplay and perspective on movies, reality TV, and gadget goodness.
Eileen, Entertainment Writer: firstname.lastname@example.org
“I am an idler. If you dig Tom Hodgkinson, then you’ll definitely grasp my perspective.”
Eileen grew up in a liberal environment surrounded by country and jazz music. She believes that life should be lived with gusto on a daily basis; too much planning can ruin the mood. For years, she held a day job that required her to crunch numbers and analyze the economics of the modern world while daydreaming of writing her own novel. After realizing that she was spending more and more time with her computer, she decided to explore the world of freelance writing. Eileen derives her inspirations from Howard Roark, her beagles, DSH cat and travails in and around the metro via mountain bike.
Amity, TV Show Editor/Writer: email@example.com
“I’m too nerdy for normal, but not smart enough to be a nerd.”
Amity loves dogs, KTV, Word Web, Lexpert, Quiz Nights, and word puzzles. She has hosted a radio show, a wedding, an office affair and a clan party. She is an endorser of Geox shoes and the PLDT Household & Business Metro Manila Telephone Directory maps, but neither of these companies know that she exists. Although she has studied Legal Management, Psychology, Linguistics, Communication, and has been licensed as a non-life, life and mutual fund agent, her claim to fame is playing badminton left-handed when her right arm was injured. Check out her favorite TV shows of all time in the universe.
Heinie, Editor/MMA Writer: firstname.lastname@example.org
“It’s funny how chaos scares the sh*t outta all of us. Thing is, it’s because of chaos that everything is born and created. So, what’s a world without chaos?”
Heinie is one busy guy. He’s been in radio for over a decade producing commercials and imaging materials for national radio stations. When the MMA crossed his line of sight in 2005, a new passion lit up inside of him. MMA training? Hell no! Just an addiction for the most honest brutality that ends in fair sportsmanship. Busy as he is, all his responsibilities go out the window for the MMA – UFC, Bellator, Strike Force, Super Fight League, WEC – all of it! For all the MMA rumors, breaking news, and live recaps, he’s our go-to guy!
Stan, WWE Writer: email@example.com
“Cheering faces and booing heels since 2003. Owner of ten wrestling t-shirts (and counting). Nerd? You bet.”
Stan is a radio DJ, events host, troll, basketball fan, and most importantly, a wrestling fan. He has spent all his life looking for love. After discovering and nurturing his love and passion for radio, basketball, and wrestling, all that’s left for him to find is actual romance. He is one half of The Twisted Tag Team, which airs every weekend from 2-5 PM.
Ruth, Video Games Writer: firstname.lastname@example.org
“Life is a game and the only way to survive is in God mode.”
Ruth’s original plan was to become a doctor, get married and rule the world. Alas, the fates did not take her seriously (like everyone else). Maybe it was because of her ever smiling eyes and hearty laugh. Ruth then became a licensed Physiotherapist, a profession she has learned to love. When she is not helping cripples walk and regain the will to live, Ruth enjoys losing herself in books and video games. Surprisingly,she also likes watching musicals and Disney animations. Her bucket list includes kissing Roger Craig Smith, David Hayter and James McAvoy. Ruth lives with 2 dogs and 2 very evil cats who secretly plot to kill her.
THE GRAPHIC ARTISTS:
Willy, Graphic Digital Artist: email@example.com
“Asian-inspired, practically intelligent, and philosopically inclined.”
Willy is the digital mastermind behind Nerdle’s nerdy-yet-ubercool banner you see running atop every single page of this site. Willy loves taking the traditional arts and digitizing them for the 21st Century. Ultimately, he cares not for the technical aspects of “doing” art. Rather, he’s after that beautiful outcome of “creating” art. He is a true artist who continuously studies and hones his craft, and always tries to rise above his best to be better. Yes, folks. True story – better is better than best. He just doesn’t think out of the box – he creates his own! Check out his box of art in his portfolio here.
Matt, Graphic Cartoon Artist: firstname.lastname@example.org
“I dig B-movies and I want to direct my own someday. People should be more forward, hesitation is a thing of the past.”
Matt hails from the Maryland, and frequently travels from the East Coast to the Far East. A graphic entrepreneur, societal deviant, and the winner of Stud Magazine’s 2012 Skinniest Bachelor Award, Matt is the self-proclaimed leading man in “Cartoon-ified Realism” today. His dream is to start his own T-shirt line using his wide array of hand drawn illustrations, and to one day design his own tattoos. When he’s not drawing, Matt can be found writing screenplays, crashing beachside parties, and not reading. Check out his gallery of art here.
Jason, Contributor: email@example.com
jsncruz, Mr. Positive. He writes too: “I believe in the power of positive thinking. I’m also a running addict, a wine geek, and a writer.”
Jason Cruz, or “jsncruz” as he is known in the jungles of the Internet, is a firm believer in personal choices and the power of thinking positively. He runs a lot and is a regular face at local running events. He’s also your not-boring and not-old wine geek when it comes to this grape juice, with over a hundred tasting notes and reviews under his (expanding) belt. A firm believer in peace, love, the environment and Darth Vader, jsncruz is not your average nerd.
Lexi, Contributor: firstname.lastname@example.org
“When life gives me lemons, I make orange juice.”
Lexi is currently a 4th year M.A. Humanities student, majoring in Literature. She is a sanguine young lady with “Don’t Rain on my Parade” ringing in her heart. She has been a fan of anime, manga, and video games ever since she was a little girl, and has been aspiring to create one of her own titles ever since. Quality animation, mind-blowing writing, and an amazing OST are what win her over. She also suffers from schediaphilia syndrome, explaining her Seto Kaiba obsession. See also: graphic novels, comic books, movies, vintage, the Golden Era of Hollywood, Audrey Hepburn, Neil Gaiman, and singing at 3AM.
Romeo, WWE Contributor: email@example.com
“My name’s Romeo and I’m such a wrestling nerd, my main goal in life is to make wrestling academic… whether you like it or not. I’m also a self-proclaimed intellectual savior of the masses. (You’re welcome.)”
Romeo is the thinking man’s wrestling fan. You can see it in the way he grapples with deep levels of analysis to put his columns together. More importantly, he is a fan before anything else, which means he knows when to put on his hat as a columnist and as a guy who just flat out loves wrestling. But he’s not some overweight couch potato who spends his days scouring the interwebs for somebody to love. He knows darn well how to live up to his name of being a true blue Romeo – but that’s a story for another day.
Allen, Tech Contributor: firstname.lastname@example.org
“I try to push people to not just think, but also feel outside the box.”
Allen’s confusing CV includes a range of job titles that often elicit confused stares or awkward laughter. From processing Karaoke song files to proofreading novels, he has built a reputation of being a jack of all trades, but still believes he is a master of none. His dream is to write a best-selling book which will be adapted into a Hollywood movie, and will feature a soundtrack filled with his song compositions. He will win a Nobel Prize for literature, an Oscar for best adapted screenplay, and a Grammy for best album. And maybe then he can wake up from his dream and actually do something.
