Hi, there! Thank you for visiting NERDSHOCK HQ , a personal geek out project. My name is Aleida Samallo (1984). I’m a Gamer, Minimalist & Digital Hermit. I currently live together with my partner and our two cats in my hometown in one of the quiet northern provinces of The Netherlands. After spending the last decade focusing on work, I’ve managed to escape the rat race so I can finally focus on my creative bucketlist and hardcore geek out. After all, I’m madly in love with awesome movies, binge-worthy shows, delicious tunes & epic videogames.

NERDSHOCK HQ officially launched at the start of 2013 as an independent lifestyle blog. Over the years HQ changed more and more into a static hub where I kept a catalogue of my unboxing video’s and play sessions. I felt my old content was weighing down on me and stopped my from creating new stuff. At the start of 2022 I decided to take the drastic step to remove all my old content and simply start with a clean slate. So, here we are.

I’m currently still busying setting things up and will slowly, but surely add fresh content to NERDSHOCK HQ ⚡

Please enjoy your stay!
