Portrait of Pilar Clark

Pilar Clark

A native of Chile with deep Chicago roots, Pilar and geekdom have been mutually exclusive since tight-rolled jeans and slap bracelets were in fashion, making it fitting she married a Star Wars nerd and made two nerdlets. An award-winning writer, multimedia storyteller, and brand strategist, her work has appeared on a number of prominent parenting and pop culture sites; and she's been featured in some cool places like the AP, CNN, GMA and Huffington Post among others. An avid photographer and travel hound, Pilar was recently inspired to build a travel community that brings world-curious families together, resulting in explorewanderland.com.

  • First Star Wars Memory
    The speeder bike chase in Return of the Jedi.

    Revenge of the Sith. Blame Hayden Christensen and his wavy hair and stormy eyes.
  • Favorite Character
    Han Solo
  • Favorite Scene
    Not the most original fave, but I dig the "I love you/I know" scene from Empire. Somehow, carbon freezing makes for moments of enchantment.
