SkeptiCamp NYC Profile

Biography: Science editor for the website AiPT! Comics, soliciting and publishing content on the science of superheroes and other pop culture, with an emphasis on skepticism and critical thinking. That sounds like more of a buzzkill than it actually is -- we live by one rule; "Don't kill the fun!"

Proposed Session Title: The Power of Pop Compels You: Geek Culture as a Vector for Outreach
Session Description:
Let's face it -- in today's world, geek culture is pop culture. And most skeptics are geeks, so why not take advantage of that? Lots of websites discuss the science of superheroes, but as an editor for AiPT! Comics, I bring the skepticism to our fandoms. When Hydra tries to use fluoride to control people, we are there! When the creator of Wonder Woman also pushes his polygraph, we are there! Find the hidden skepticism in entertainment, and find out how you can help reach beyond the echo chamber and build your own name at the same time!
