    First video game console I started playing on was the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System), mostly Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt. I've always played video games throughout my entire life, but it was taken seriously till I discovered the "Call of Duty" series. My first online tournament was a March Madness Tournament on the Gamebattles website for Modern Warfare 3 where we ended up getting eliminated in the 4th round. From there I got the taste of the competitive spirit and competed in several LAN tournaments before giving up the pro player dream in the middle of Call of Duty: Ghosts, where I moved into a Management role on Purist Gaming. From there I was approached by Charlie Watson of SetToDestroyX to take on a Vital role as Chief Creative Officer for the company, and that's where I'm at today. Majority of my hobbies outside of Gaming is photography and videography, as well as watching TV shows and movies with my Girlfriend. Gaming is a passion of mine that will never die, and I'm very excited to see where eSports will be in the future....Read More

    When you first started gaming? I first started gaming when I was ten. I remember playing Mario at a friend's house and begging my mom for a Nintendo. first tournament or competition? never competed. Gaming is just fun for me. why you got into gaming? When I was ten, I was gaming because I loved playing and was very competitive. I wanted to learn games and finish them. I stopped gaming in high school because it was just not something that was important to me. About 7 years ago, I was dating someone who played nonstop. There was only one tv in the house and he played constantly. Even, though I had played games previously, he was playing Call of Duty with a much more complex controller, movement system, etc. than I had experience with growing up playing Nintendo. But, I figured it was either learn to play or be bored out of my mind watching him. Eventually, I started playing more and more, even when he wasn't around. I was also persuaded by some of the guys that my boyfriend played online with to play with them as well. So, I did. The interactions built in with playing with the guys made gaming even more fun. I couldn't wait to go home and play. Eventually, my boyfriend and I broke up and the guys decided that they would rather hang out with me and play with me. So, we are still friends to this day and game together every week. favorite game? My favorite game is Call of Duty Black Ops 1, with Black Ops 2 at a close second. My favorite pc game is H1z1 hobbies outside of gaming? go to gym, church, spend time with dogs, friends, and family dream job? I'm doing it right now!

    When you first started gaming? I've been gaming for as long as I can remember. I started with PC and the original Gameboy. It wasn't long before I was hooked to multiple platforms. first tournament or competition? I've never professionally competed but since the age of thirteen, I've helped various places (Walmart, GameStop, local schools) set up tournaments in the past. I prefer attending events so I can capture the story of what happens and relay it in written form. why you got into gaming? Gaming more or less saved my life. I grew up around gaming, but never fully took to it myself until I was around twelve. Online gaming opened up a way for me to talk to and communicate with others who were passionate about gaming. Through gaming I learned and am still learning new ways to cope and face my agoraphobia, ADHD and borderline personality disorder. Gaming allows me to lead on teams, learn new strategies and feel like I'm actually being heard. Gaming is a hobby and passion for some, but for me it's considered life. It's the only way I've ever been able to express myself and through it I'm reaching others and passing on the same tools. favorite game? Soul Seeker (mobile game by Com2Us) is my favorite game. hobbies outside of gaming? Fiction writing & singing are my hobbies outside of gaming. dream job? I'm already working my dream job.
