[Avatar for Nick Browne]

Nick Browne

THEM Message Board Name: SarcotarascusN

Hometown: Tucson, Arizona, USA
Education: Pomona College '15-Geochemistry

Nick Browne first experienced Japanese animation when he was three years old and watched "My Neighbor Totoro", which was his favorite movie for a long, long time. He had no concept of what "anime" was at the time, but he watched that movie so often that when a family moved into the house next to his, his first words to them were "looks like we're gonna be neighbors!" He's been a Miyazaki fan ever since.

He first became fascinated with the medium of anime itself when he stumbled upon Cowboy Bebop and, later, Neon Genesis Evangelion at his high school's anime club. Those two shows, which he became ridiculously addicted to, were his "gateway". While Nick has something of a love/hate relationship with the medium and has had a hard time with some aspects of anime fandom, he's never truly wanted to go back through the gate.

Nick lives in the California Central Coast and is currently an Earth Science grad student at UCSB. He plays the cello in his spare time and misses hosting the radio show he hosted while living in Claremont; he's a cooking enthusiast and something of an avid hiker, and he generally leads a fairly quiet life. One of these days, he'd like to get a dog or cat, but sadly, neither his current lifestyle nor his lease currently permits that, and so he'll take basically any excuse he can get to spend time with other peoples' animals.
