How can I be in the Gamer Spotlight?
Xbox Community Ambassadors who hit Level 13 in the Ambassador program are guaranteed a Gamer Spotlight feature. If you're NOT an Ambassador, send us a nomination email (nominating yourself or someone else who loves Xbox) at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Gamer Spotlight." You don’t need to have a certain gamerscore and you don’t have to live in the United States. You DO need to be at least 13 years old. We get thousands of nominations every week, so make your email stand out: tell us about the cool or interesting things you do when you’re not gaming. Do you have a crazy job or unusual hobby? Let us know! We’ll get in touch with you if we think you would make a good interview subject. Good luck!

What do you do when you're not playing games?
Usually I'm listening to music, watching a good movie, or just hanging out with family and/or friends. I also am on the Web a lot, updating my Flight of the Conchords fan blog whenever I can.
What is your greatest Xbox LIVE moment?
Well I've had a lot, but getting that first nuke in Modern Warfare 2 was pretty nice, also starting my clan the XBSC (Xbox Snitch Crew). I started it when I noticed Call of Duty: Black Ops being plagued by offensive emblems and I've been reporting offenders ever since. I'd like to one day get it more popular so we can kind of "Clean up the streets of menace" haha! But yeah, that's about it there. I do enjoy when people trash talk to me, it's always a motivational boost when someone complains about how much you camp, or how good you are or how much of a "noob" I am for using a weapon that's part of the game. It's always a blast when that happens.
Favorite movie quote?
From Shaun of the Dead: ED: There's a girl in the garden. SHAUN: What? ED: In the garden, there is a girl.
If you could trade places with anyone for one day, who would it be?
That's a hard one, but I suppose I'd go with Bill Gates, I'd like to see how life would be with that amount of money, probably pretty intense to have that much money, but I'd try it for sure.
If you could be any video game character, who would it be?
I think John Marston [from Red Dead Redemption]. I'm starting to really dig the whole western genre these days, and I think being John Marston would be interesting. Now I know why my father enjoyed his Westerns. Could you imagine even living in that time period? I can't believe it's even real, it just doesn't seem to match up with other parts of our history. Or so it seems for me.
Complete this sentence, "People of Earth, ...:
"Come ride with me on the back of the Unicorn!"
If you could go on tour with any band—past or present—which would it be?
Flight of the Conchords for sure. I've yet to see them live, and if I could, that would be pretty legit! I also imagine those guys would be pretty chill dudes. Not sure if I'm really interested in going on tour with any band, because I imagine the living conditions would be cramped or not so fun, but still it would be pretty fun.
