  Alyssa Lerner Senior Editor / Writer   Alyssa spends most of her time deciphering serious academic papers about asparagus. But after hours, odds are you'll find her losing spectacularly at a video game or surrounded by circuit boards and an assortment of screws. She knows an alarming number of obscure facts about tiny towns.

  Josef "Tuna" Metesh Videomaker   Tuna is the kind of guy who reads all the manuals for the things he buys. Nerdy, maybe, but he never has to ask about camera settings. In his spare time he plays and records music and does sound design for film, but his time is rarely spare because he has a tendency to take on more projects than he should. Someday he'll hit a balance and be able to take a break, probably, but I wouldn't count on it.

  Christie Wilcox Writer/Editor  At five years old, Christie she told her teacher she liked to "open the mouths of dead geckos to look at their tongues"—an obsession with life that has only deepened with time. She studied toxic lionfish for her PhD and wrote a book on venomous animals, so she's most proud of the fact that she's made it into her 30s unscathed. Well, except for that urchin sting. And that monkey bite. But that was really not her fault, and hey, at least monkeys aren't venomous.
