About Us

How did SoGeekChic come to be? Once upon a time at a University far, far away, two college freshman united over a love of late night breakfast. Over plates of bacon and eggs, Emily and Alexi joined forces in common effort to spread geekdom throughout the world.

Now graduates (who still can’t really call themselves adults), SoGeekChic has become their weapon of mass education for men and women alike. 

Emily (left): A journalist and layout designer pursuing a second degree Graphic Design, Emily needed an outlet for the interests that get her strange looks in public. To see some of her work, visit: emhandy.com or her tumblr. If you’re reading posts on video games or graphic design, chances are Emily is behind them.
