What is your name and age?

Taylor, 25.

How long have you been playing video games?

I was first exposed to video games when I was around 5 years old. A family friend gave my brothers and I an old NES that she planned on throwing away, and since then I've been hooked. I can remember playing the first Legend of Zelda and having no idea what I was doing. I would run around Hyrule field and slay octoroks for hours. Ahhh good memories.

What are your other hobbies besides video games?

I like to think of myself as a pretty well rounded person. As much as I love gaming, I have a ton of other interests as well. For one, I'm a total foodie. I rarely watch TV but when I do, I binge on Food Network. Most of the time I'm either talking about food, thinking about food, or if I'm lucky, eating something tasty 🙂

Beyond my inner glutton, I love animals. In the past I've had everything from cats and dogs to the less common leopard gecko and bearded dragon. I currently own two little kitties named Luna and Mochi and a German Shepherd Mix named Harley Q. I'm also a pretty active person, I love to go hiking which can be hard with the crazy hot weather in Las Vegas where I live. Also reading, writing, and of course, singing in the shower.

What consoles do you own?

Growing up, I was a total Nintendo kid. But over the years I've swayed a bit from my beloved Hyrule and Mushroom Kingdom because I often find myself questioning Nintendo's business decisions and thinking to myself, WTF are you doing! I mean, innovation is great, but the hardcore peeps need a little love too. At least the Wii U is finally getting some less casual titles so I'm actually thinking about adding it to my repertoire. Super Smash Bros. and Xenoblade Chronicles X could very well steer me to Nintendo land once again. I could really use a new Metroid game in my life as well. Anway, I guess I should answer the question now huh 🙂

Wait, how many websites have you owned?

Haha good question! So while still in college (2010), I founded Gaming Precision which was my first online venture. It was amazing, but I ended up selling it prior to my internship at NBC Universal and G4TV. In fact, the profits made from the site funded my entire internship expenses in LA, and my last year of college. Win win 😀

Next came Gamer Girl Tay (2012), which was more of a personal blog. I ditched the "video game news" model, went back to basics with simple, casual opinion/editorial pieces and a ton of fun things! But just recently I came to realize, just how juvenile the 'gamer girl' slogan was. Well, I never loved the name in the first place I just didn't have any better ideas in all honesty. It's hard to be taken seriously with such a lame website name, and I certainly don't want to be known as Gamer Girl Tay, so I figured it was time for an upgrade.

So I've officially transitioned to my final digital resting place, GeekzSpawnHere.com. I picked a purposely broad name so that I would have the freedom to write about whatever I want! Games, comics, movies, cartoons, whatever. This site represents my personal hub, where I'll showcase what I'm playing in videos, talk about my thoughts on the latest gaming announcements, share stories about my adorable pets, and of course, highlight my latest culinary adventures including cooking attempts and mouthwatering, high resolution restaurant food porn. You're welcome.

In all seriousness, thank you for visiting my site. Feel free to send me a message or add me on PSN/XBL/Steam.
