  3. 3. About Nathan Young 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
  4. 4. Not to mention, where I live…
  5. 5. East Alabama is one of the poorest regions in America Russell cuts over 10,000 jobs Avondale Mills closes and burns Anniston / Oxford top worst performing metro Broke gentlemen on national television Gadsden the 4th poorest city in USA Talladega the 5th poorest region in USA
  6. 6. Why am I looking nationwide? I have helped out many people from charities, local events, small businesses, other media like the TV stations, promotions, and more! Most people I have helped have said they would love to pay me for my time, and they wish they could. The problem is, East Alabama is one of the poorest regions in America, that means money is very limited and tight. People do not have the option to pay me, and it’s okay because I understand the situations. I am taking my job search nationwide so I can get paid for what I do very well! That’s photography, videography, event coverage, interviewing, publishing, and writing!

  20. 20. What it means to be a geek/nerd On my bio on all social media sites, you see that I am a big Road, Weather, and News Junkie Geek/Nerd. And that is all very true! I just love roads so much that I draw them and collect road memorabilia like traffic lights. I love weather so much that I do a daily weather forecast on social media and will warn people when weather threatens. And yes, I have chased storms during severe weather. I am also a news junkie geek and pay attention to the daily news, although I am more partial to technology and geeky/nerdy news. Being a geek/nerd is cool! Road Geek Weather Geek News Geek

  23. 23. Autism / Asperger’s Awareness Some people know that I have Asperger’s Syndrome / High Functioning Autism.
