I started Trek Talking in 2015 as way to keep Star Trek fans in the know about everything Star Trek, express my love for the franchise, and promote IDIC (Infinite Diversity Infinite Combinations) Since that time, it has bloomed into a live weekly podcast. Me and my Treksperts (cohosts) discuss the latest Star Trek episode, comic books, novels, video games, anything Star Trek related. I attended my first Star Trek Convention in 1983 and have been hooked ever since, cosplaying as a Klingon, and my favorite thing is meeting fans, like you, in person at the various events that Trek Talking attends. Call the show (646)668-2433, during showtime, and say Qapla'

For me, Star Trek started with the syndicated show in the 70s, then the movies, and the different television shows and continued into movies. Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica to name just a few. September 1987 I gained a new interest in Sci-Fi when Star Trek: The Next Generation came to TV. My Mom and I became serious Trekies, including a couple early conventions. In the summer of 2016, the Las Vegas 51’s AAA Baseball Team celebrated Star Wars Day. At that game, I met two members of the USS Las Vegas Star Trek Club, and by the following month, I was a member of the club. A member of the club introduced me to The Trek Talking Podcast, and after becoming a frequent caller, got an offer to replace one of the co-hosts, and join the crew. Because of the show, I got into Star Trek Attack Wing, and into board gaming, and into IDW Comics and the new Star Trek Novels, which we review on the show.

For me I became a Star Trek fan during the early to mid-nineties, my love for Sci-Fi shows started to gain momentum after finishing the DS9 series, (AKA my favorite Star Trek series) then I really started getting into Star Trek, from collecting Star Trek magazines and trinkets to playing Star Trek video games. I like all sorts of games from the board to PC. I've been told I have a great sense of humor and love to make people laugh.
