Bred to be a Geek and she is proud of it! Jessa is the daughter of SciFi fans and technophiles. Brought up on heavy doses of Star Trek & Star Wars, it is no surprise shiny objects still catch her attention. Her voracious appetite for all things tech began with her first computer, an Apple II GS (pin-fed Imagewriter pages she still has in her possession, for their sentimental value).

Escaping her day job in the land of HTML and Twitter posts, Jessa maintains her geek cred as a freelance web designer and blogger. Articles penned by Jessa have been featured on Rocket LlamaGame Tyrant, Action Flick Chick, RevolutionSFHour42Geek Girls Network & Txt Movie ClubShe was bit by the podcasting bug when she became a regular on the We Talk About LOST ReWatch Podcast and can now be heard as a regular guest on Tuning Into SciFi TV’s Saturday B Movie Reel Podcastas well as the RevolutionSF RevCastEarth Station One and Shauncastic. That is, when she is not producing and hosting podcasts here at Good To Be A Geek. Always connected, Geek penetrates her focus at all times. Even while she is working, there is a technology or gaming podcast playing in the background. Jessa is a member of the International Association of Internet Broadcasters (IAIB).

Her most recent foray into the geekdom has been conventions. If you cannot find her online, chances are she is at a convention. When recently asked what would be the one item she would grab if her house were on fire, she proudly replied, “my convention badges.” She has been honored to be a panelist at Arisia and ConnectiCon, as well as on the American SciFi & Fantasy Media & American Classic SciFi Tracks at Dragon*Con.

Adding feathers to her cap, Jessa was featured as Voice of a Gamer for the Entertainment Consumers Association. This year, she is a judge for The Geekie Awards in the Video Game category.
