My name is Margarita, and I am a Geek Mom! I have a degree in Computer Science, but as often happens, I have enjoyed a career as a Graphic Designer. A few years back, I decided to mash these passions together by starting my own web & graphic design business that I ran from home. My husband, Geek Dad Mike, is a senior software developer who is passionate about great code, all things STEM, and gaming.
We have two kids, Becca (our 13-year-old daughter) and Charlie (our 12-year-old son). Mike and I have always shared our interests with them, and they’ve developed their own love for science and technology. On any given day, you could find us all discussing some recent discovery, watching Star Trek together, playing games (video, tabletop, role-playing - it all goes), or some other geeky pastime. We’ve also regularly searched for local events to support their interests outside the house, but it was a struggle! With the ongoing movement in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), we knew we had to be missing something. We came to realize that the events and organizations were available - there was just no place to find out about them! That’s how “Geek Families” was born.
From our geek family to yours, welcome to the Geek Families community! Mike, Margarita, Becca & Charlie
