Meet Jak

Hi! I’m Jak! I’m the newest member of the Nerd Sanctuary family! I moved to Asheville when I was 15 years old. I was at an age where I was shoved into a new environment, and so scared of being “the new kid”. My parents had told me about this cool store that they had come to when they visited Asheville. After hearing about it, I knew I had to go.

Since then, the Nerd Sanctuary has been an outlet for me to talk with Matt and Morgan about any and all nerdy subjects. Being a kid in a very sports heavy school, being a nerd was deemed childish or embarrassing. Morgan and Matt changed my opinion on that and helped me learn that it’s awesome to be myself! The environment that has been created at this store is an incredibly welcoming one, and one I’m so incredibly fortunate to be a part of.

Some of my interests are reading comics (duh), film making, cosplaying, skateboarding, and making music! If you’re a fellow DC/Marvel nerd like me, come on and stop in! I’d love to talk to you about all things Nightwing/Spider-Man related!!
