[Avatar for Nicoletta Christina Browne]

Nicoletta Christina Browne

THEM Message Board Name: SarcotarascusN

Hometown: Tucson, Arizona, USA
Education: Pomona College '15 - Chemistry/Geology, University of California: Santa Barbara '20 - PhD, Earth Sciences

Nicoletta, or "Nic" ("Nico" to Carlos and Stig, to her amusement) basically found anime through My Neighbor Totoro when she was little. She liked it so much that when a family moved into the house next to hers, her first words to them were "hey, looks like we're gonna be neighbors!" She's basically never stopped being an anime fangirl since, although she only regularly started watching anime after discovering Cowboy Bebop and Evangelion in high school.

Nicoletta has something of a love/hate relationship with anime because of some aspects of otakudom and because of some ongoing anime burnout, but there's more love than anything, and she's basically an unabashed geek and fangirl. She's self-described shoujo and josei trash but is also drawn towards weird, experimental sci-fi works. She'll admit that she herself doesn't always totally get them, either.

Nicoletta is currently a Ph.D. student in Earth Sciences in California. She hosted a radio show in undergrad and is trying to start that up again; if there's one thing she's more opinionated about than anime, it's music. She also plays the cello and tries to keep that up in the spare time she has (aside: why aren't there more cellists in anime?). She's a massive animal-lover and wants to get a cat when she has a lease that allows it, but for now, she'll basically take any excuse she can to play with other people's pets.
