Origin Story

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…our origin story began…

Nerd Out has been on the market since early August 2015. The brainchild of Michelle L. Jensen. Nerd Out was born out of frustration. Having previously been a blogger about nerdy and geeky things, thru that she discovered the enormous fandom community. However, the information for nerd based events was scattered across the web, making it difficult for nerds to find. Frustrated with this lack of organization, she built a place for it all to live, the Nerd Out calendar.
