Since age five, Nomegla has been coding in Scratch, building Minecraft masterpieces, soldering geiger counters, and even building digital art assets for Obey Giant. He’s even taught a workshop on generative art at NFT BC. Nomegla is a numbers ninja, acing advanced math classes and swooping into the top 5 in multiple math competitions. He’s also a language superstar and chats in English and French (checkout the Cryptoboi Duet). Nomegla is obsessed with delicious food and whips up delicious vegan dishes and baked treats, all while caring deeply for our furry friends. Plus, he’s the coolest snowboarder on the slopes.

“No One Is Born Racist”
Nomegla and Tara are a well recognized meme. Sean Bonner took a photo of his family on the Paris Metro. Someone grabbed the phot from Flickr and added the text, “No one is born racist.” More than a decade later the meme has been circulated globally (even translated!) with millions and millions of views. Tara gave a talk analyzing the comments on the posts that ranged from kind to downright awful. A few years ago she found the stranger in the photo and were reunited in Paris. She still needs to write about that experience.
