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's the story behind your gamertag?
Malpraxis (Greek for “Malpractice,” a medical joke ad hoc considering my background) was taken. Zabaoth was too, so I decided to spice things up a little. Sometimes I think it kinda sounds feminine, but what the heck.
What do you do when you're not playing games?
I'm your friendly neighbor Medical Intern, healing people all day, just to kill them all night (virtually). So I guess my Karma is evened out … sort of. The rest of the time I do portrait photography for fun. I have a nice little improvised studio set up and everything. I wish I didn't completely suck at it, but I'm learning!
What's the worst or weirdest job you've ever had?
That's gotta be doing shifts at the Pediatric ER. I got punched, spat on, kicked, peed on, shouted at, all while having to keep a smile.
What is your greatest Xbox LIVE moment?
When after a summer of running and dieting I lost 20kgs and could finally make my avatar stop looking morbidly obese.
If you could be any video game character, who would it be?
I know it's really unoriginal, but I'd be my Dragonborn. The guy is rich, well connected, immortal, and can make enemies implode by just looking at them. Plus I could shout people off cliffs. Who wouldn't want that?
What's the worst food you've ever eaten?
Ants. I ate freaking ants. They weren't really that bad until you realize what's in your mouth.
Complete this sentence: "People of Earth, ...:
“ … Don't go to the ER for a cold at 3AM!”
If you could go on tour with any band—past or present—which would it be?
Morcheeba. Skye Edwards' voice is just too soothing. That'd be perpetual bliss.
What would you like to be doing in ten years?
Medical Oncologist/Semipro Photographer.
