Sorry, but we're definitely going to need more information to even try to answer your question properly; you didn't really list anything that is more beneficial to any particular role over others, and "getting bored really fast" isn't really a quality well suited to ANY role.

Can you program?  Do you have graphical design skills?  Can you make music?

 

Those are the key three areas that will allow you to get started realistically.  While it's true that being able to come up with concepts is a good (and useful) skill, very few people would be willing to join up with someone who is unable to do contribute to a project in other ways besides ideas.

From "math" and "nerd" alone, it may seem that programming is suitable for you.

 

However, the most important question to ask is what do you do in your spare time?  When you have nothing to do, what were the things you did besides sleeping/eating?

I might humbly suggest that you're doing things a bit backwards. I think most people don't choose a fairly narrow and specialized profession as a goal and then try to fit themselves into it somehow. There's nothing inherently wrong with that approach, but there's a danger of focusing so much on that goal that one might miss or dismiss their true calling.

For myself, I became interested in creating games, and as I explored what that was, doing the programming, the art, writing, level design, and dabbling in sound and music, I found that I really enjoyed the programming part most. But if I hadn't enjoyed any of it I wouldn't have pursued it.

What you *don't* want to end up doing is putting yourself into a position where you only tolerate work that you're not excited about because you get to make games--because if the gaming angle falls through you're going to be unhappy doing the same work elsewhere to make ends meet.

Find the work that you enjoy, and then do your best to put those skills to work towards something you can be proud of. Don't put pride above satisfaction.

You're young, explore while you can. Continue exploring gaming, spend some more time programming (it takes awhile to push yourself over the first hump or three before it begins to feel natural and enjoyable), and explore other things you think you might enjoy too.
