MREs are definitely not haute cuisine.

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 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!

By participating, you agree that information you provide can be used by Xbox in Gamer Spotlight publicity.


What's the story behind your gamertag?
It's mostly just nonsense, though I've been told it makes me sound like a polo that bro's wear.

What do you do when you're not playing games?
I'm an adrenaline junkie, so anything that will give me a rush. Everything from parkour and freerunning to biking and skydiving. I'm actually kind of scared of heights but that's why I love them. I try to be as safe as possible but the saying "no risk, no reward" is very true at times. 

What's the worst or weirdest job you've ever had?
My current job in the U.S. Army infantry is pretty crazy at times. It's definitely not like the movies.

What is your greatest Xbox LIVE moment?
I would have to say the time I won Recon armor in Halo 3 from Bungie Day. I got up early and worked all day to get it and in the end it paid off.

Favorite movie quote?
Pretty much anything from Shaun of the Dead.

If you could trade places with anyone for one day, who would it be?
I think trading places with my dog for a day would be pretty cool.

If you could be any video game character, who would it be?
I want to be a Big Daddy from BioShock. Not in Rapture or anything, just a Big Daddy strollin' down the sidewalk.

What's the worst food you've ever eaten?
Some of the food that comes in MREs (Meals Ready to Eat) shouldn't be allowed to be called food.

If you could go on tour with any band—past or present—which would it be?
The Devil Wears Prada. They were my first real concert and it was one of the most fun things ever.

What would you like to be doing in ten years?
Pro extreme sports/stuntman.

What is the Gamer Spotlight?

The Gamer Spotlight is a weekly feature here on and on Xbox LIVE where we interview someone from the Xbox LIVE community. We’ve interviewed contest winners, podcasters, grandmas, soldiers, teachers, lawyers, students, rappers, artists, moms, dads and teenagers. What they all have in common is they play games on Xbox LIVE! Meet new people every week in the Gamer Spotlight!
