Famous Nerds

Once again, that video of the 2 Cellos performing for an 18th century audience showed up in my feed today.  I love that video.  It got me to thinking, how many people have become famous, have had wild success, excelling at the very things that would make them called nerds in middle school?

This is a list I hope to constantly add to so I can show it to the girls one day and prove to them that it doesn’t matter how dorky your passion – excel at it and a fan club will find you.  Please add to this list in the comments!
