About Jessica Naki

Jessica Naki profile photo
Starting at an early age, Jessica has always been working in the arts. Between writing, acting, directing, singing, dancing and martial arts, her life has been geared towards the entertainment of others. Early in life she took to reading, novels, comic books and everything she could get her hands on. As a teenager she was obsessed with The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and Disney movies starring little blue aliens that are mistaken for dogs. Not much has changed over the years, as she continues to read everything that comes her way, writing as much as possible, working in theater and training in martial arts. She can tell you everything you need to know about horror movies, where to go for good sushi, and anything about Gears of War. She’ll recite every line from Invader Zim. Recently she’s become more active in the convention circuit, while she has been volunteering for over 10 years, she has become more involved in her roles. You can find her working backstage of theaters, playing security and setting up the stage for the major panels. If her nose isn’t in a book, her laptop or training, she’s probably set up on an XBox somewhere. She’s very proud to let her nerd flag fly at all times!
Favorites: Lord of the Rings, Pans Labyrinth, True Blood, Star Wars, Lilo and Stitch, Hellboy, Green Lantern (comics), Batman, Power Rangers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Location: Downers Grove, IL

  • TLC Dating Show ‘Geek Love’ Review

    Posted Monday, December 19th, 2011 12:00 pm GMT -4 by
    I feel like I should write a disclaimer before I give you an essay to read: I hate Reality TV. I hate everything there is about it. I hate how little creativity there is because of Reality TV, where television shows like ‘Happy Town’ get cancelled before 3 episodes...

  • ‘Dexter: Talk To The Hand’ – Recap

    Posted Monday, December 12th, 2011 06:00 pm GMT -4 by
