Our Resident Film BuffNATE THE GREAT | The Movie Maniac

Our resident film buff, Nate, is a graduate of Texas Christian University in 2004 with a BS (no, not that BS) in Radio-TV-Film. This was before the first two became completely obsolete (thanks Technology!) and the world became much smaller. Nate is a former hoop hero turned plain ol’ hero and enjoys cerebral, mind bending films, comics, making and listening to music, taking in the arts and romping around with the dog. He enjoys the simple things in life i.e. anything that has to do with Batman, cold winter nights, peanut butter on pancakes (with warm maple syrup) and appreciates a good burger and fries – maybe a little too much.

He is also an award-winning graphic designer and co-founder of The FPMedia Group, a Dallas-based web design agency. Nate started GOM on a little nudge from his incredibly loving and amazingly supportive girlfriend, Neeley, to whom he dedicates the site. He met Lee in 2005, right before Christopher Nolan’s masterful film Batman Begins hit theaters and the two have remained close friends since. Shane, his step-brother and close geek cohort, joined the staff in April of 2012. He is long time friends/teammates with Matt G and step-brother to GOM regular Shane (contrary to the film, we swear we get along famously). Nate’s faith in God, hunger for knowledge and extreme love for the gift of life keeps him going each and every day. As a movie buff, Nate has been shaped by the films: The Wizard of OzBack to the FutureThe Empire Strikes BackBatman ’89Goodfellas and Raging Bull.
