Why is gaming important to you?
It’s crazy to think sometimes that I’m able to get lost in a virtual world of wonders every day and still come back wanting even more than the last. I appreciate that some of my closest bonds have been made through gaming. Games play a key role in my life and drive my passion; they are the reason I am where I am today.
What has been your proudest accomplishment as part of Full Sail Armada?
I’d definitely have to say becoming VP of Events for Full Sail Armada. When I first came to Full Sail, I hadn’t really realized my passion for wanting to join the world of esports. Then, when I joined Full Sail Armada, as part of the inaugural League of Legends team, I quickly figured out what my real passion was. It took a while, but it’s what led to me becoming a VP for Full Sail Armada.
What are your favorite games to play at home?
League of Legends will usually always be my go-to game, but that spot recently has been getting contested by Valorant and Minecraft.
What are some of your other hobbies?
Some of my hobbies are reading, fitness, and playing music on the keyboard or ukulele.
What fact about you do you think would surprise your teammates?
I think the fact that I was part of a dance team at a studio for a while in high school always gets people. I did ballet, jazz, and a little bit of hip-hop.
