Road, Weather, and News Junkie Geek
Introduction

Hello geeks and nerds; let me introduce you to what I am.  Nathan Young does a lot of wonderful things in the media world, from writing, photography, videography, and social media. My current home is the blog and website Geek Alabama.  There I do everything from geeky/nerdy talk, event coverage, reviews, cooking, community coverage, promotions, and anything else to give any geek and/or nerd an organism.

If it’s anything any geek and/or nerd would care about, I am usually talking about it.  From conventions, gaming, crowdsourcing, tech, movies, TV shows, comics, books, food, videos, apps, and more.  If you are looking for articles anyone would love reading, you have come to the right place!  If you are looking for someone who can cover events with pictures and videos, cover products and shows, speak at events, cover your products, or attend your conventions, consider me!  Every geek and/or nerd from trekkies, whovians, and even bronies, already has!

The most interesting fact about me, I draw roads! #Aspie proud! #ASD
