Kahlief Adams – 35 – Editor In Chief/Owner – Brooklyn, NY


I just want to thank my momma for giving me my first Atari and helping me to become the blerd that I am today. While I'm not reminiscing about my early 90's Jansport that had massive amounts of Sharpie art, I'm holding down Editorial/Frontman/Podcast/On-air Personality duties for TheSpawnPointBlog.com and my bi-weekly podcast Spawn On Me.

  • I am BlerdNation because...

    this site is doing something that needed to be done. Having a safe place for black nerds and their nerdom is amazing and can only foster interesting and awesome conversation.

  • Who is your blerd role model? Why?

    Neil Tyson DeGrasse because he is the all the things I want to see in the world and had so many personality traits that I want to push forward. Funny, smart and takes no crap. I love that dude.

  • How do you stay connected to other blerds?

    Mostly through social media and our website. Hopefully via face to face meetups and such.

  • What’s your most awkward blerd moment?

    Probably crying at the end of Transformers: The Movie when Optimus Prime lost the matrix to Hot Rod. Life was never the same...

  • What’s your favorite word/phrase?


  • What are your goals/passions?

    I want to move cross country, make thespawnpoint viable and share the stories of people in gaming who are also people of color.

  • What are you listening to, watching, or reading that impacts you or that is giving you a different perspective?

    Lots of NPR, many different outlets through my flipboard feeds.

  • Are there any famous, or not-so-famous, people that you think would be a great addition to BlerdNation?

    Shareef Jackson from ShareefJackson.com, Cicero Holmes @stubbystan on twitter.

  • What advice would you give to other blerds?

    Being who you are is the best part of blerdom, showing all the sides or your black experience and how they interact with tech, gaming, social media are important not only for non POC's but for other black people who sometimes don't think nerdiness isn't full of dopeness.

  • If you had one game to take on an island what would it be?

    Anything from the Metal Gear series, I'm a huge fan and love all the zany bits and pieces of those games.
