In our Contributor Corner this fine week is an awesome Supervisor and a former Premier Answerer who goes by the name of Mansonrepublica. When asked how she thunk up her user name, she had this to say “It’s the online handle I’ve been using since at least 2000. It comes from my two favorite bands in middle school (when I started using the name): Marilyn Manson and Republica.” Well rock on! Let’s continue singing to the tune of Mansonrepublica!
Where do you live, how long have you lived there and why do you like the area?
I currently live in Winter Park, Florida. I’ve been here for about a year and a half, and I’ll be here for at least another six months. I’m going to school in the area.
Do you have any pets?
Nope. I live in a small apartment and spend a lot of time at school. It just doesn’t seem right to leave an animal cooped up alone all day.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Miami, Florida. My entire extended family lives in the area so we were very close.
What educational information would you like to share?
I’m currently attending Full Sail University for Show Production. I previously attended Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for Theater Design/Production, but the program was a poor fit for me.
What are your key areas of knowledge, interest or expertise?
I’m really interested in audio engineering and sound system design. I’ve been doing theater since I was ten but never had any experience in production sound until I got to college. I had a professor who decided I was a sound designer after our first assignment.
Do you have any collections or hobbies?
I love crafting! I knit, sew, cut out, glue, etc. And I’m pretty handy in the kitchen. I also collect tin toy robots and vintage cameras.
What are a few random facts about yourself?
When I was in elementary school, I won a district math competition and was on the Mathletes team.
What accomplishments are you proud of?
I was pretty psyched when I was asked to become a Supervisor! I’m very proud of the fact that I’m nearly done with my Bachelor’s degree.
What are your special goals or dreams?
I’m hoping to work for the Walt Disney Company someday. :)
What brought you to Answers.com?
Before registering for the site, I made a lot of contributions to the theater categories because I was in a theater history class. Then I would refresh the main page and answer the newest questions. I finally settled into the Disney categories a little over a year ago.
Are you a Floating or Category Supervisor (which categories)?
What keeps you coming back to Answers.com?
Knowing that I can share my Disney trivia and traveling expertise. Everyone I know comes to me when they have Disney questions, and every time I visit the parks I find myself giving advice to random travelers.
What is your favorite Answers.com activity?
I live for organization.
