Meet the Nerds, Part V: Marshall Flaig

In addition to being the Nerd’s recently promoted Service Manager, Marshall–who has been playing drums since 4th grade–is in the band, A Living Soundtrack.  Here’s the band’s link:

Another cool fact about Marshall is that he grows his hair so that when it’s long enough, he can cut it to donate to Locks of Love, which creates natural-hair wigs for children with cancer.  We’re very impressed!  Here are Marshall’s responses to our “fun facts” questions:

When asked to choose between Star Wars and Star Trek, Marshall said, “I don’t want to live in a world where I have to choose.”

PlayStation or XBox: PlayStation

Favorite game: Ni No Kuni

Android or iPhone: Android

Favorite Saints player: Kenny Vaccaro (We especially loved his key deflection in the game against the Dirty Birds!)

Best poboy shop: Crabby Jack’s (Ya’ll already know that Jack is Jacques, of Jacques Imo’s, so it’s got to be good!)
