Are you tired of being the smartest person in the room? Do you work for people who don't actually understand the work you do? Is it a relief to talk to someone who shares your interests or at least doesn't think you're weird? If so, you may be a geek like me. Not all geeks are alike, of course. For example, I'm a therapist; not what you might expect in a geek. Being a therapist who is a geek provides first-hand understanding of how we think, what we value, how we socialize, and that being a geek is not a problem to solve; being a geek is a way of thinking and being that needs to be understood if you want to work with us.
