About Jessi Bavolack and Matt Pascal:

One night after not going out and getting drunk, Matt Pascal and Jessi Bavolack realized that they were geeks in love. Having nothing better to do, they decided to create a webcomic to chronicle the crazy stuff that either happened or was imagined in their lives. Thus, "Geeks Next Door" was born. Jessi draws amusing pictures while Matt comes up with funny things to say.
