Stop Hitting Yourself: Let's Talk about Bullying
Monday, April 4, 2016

Wil Wheaton is an American actor, blogger, voice actor and writer, known for his portrayals of Wesley Crusher on the tv series Star Trek: The Next Generation, Gordie Lachance in the film Stand by Me, Joey Trotta in Toy Soldiers, and for his recurring role as a fictionalized version of himself on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory. Leaving Hollywood in pursuit of happiness and a purpose, he discovered that he was, at heart, Just a Geek. Writing with honesty and humanity, he touched on his frustrations in finding himself, the launch of his successful website, www.wilwheaton.net, and the joy he's found in writing. Wheaton, an aficionado of computers, the Internet, and technology in general, is widely recognized as one of the original celebrity bloggers. Wheaton suffers from generalized anxiety disorder and chronic depression and supports mental health nonprofit organizations in raising awareness for these conditions.
