My name is Emily and I am a nerd. Of particular note, I’m a board game nerd.
My family has been playing games for as long as I can remember. As the baby of my family, it was a monumental moment when I was finally old enough for the family to move on to the more complicated games. Soon I was able to win a game or two—much to my father’s dismay. I don’t get to play as often as I would like and the time I am able to carve out for gaming is very valuable, which is why I so often want to skip the rules and get right to the board.
When I’m not trying out a new game, I like to spend my time hiking, enjoying the local arts scene and most importantly, playing fetch with my cat.
I have a bachelor’s degree in film and video production and currently I work at the University of Florida with the best college students in the country (okay, the world).
