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 do you do when you're not playing games?
Writing non-fiction stories or hanging out with friends.

What's the worst or weirdest job you've ever had?
I had a job at a seafood joint once. The place smelled bad and my co-workers were jerks.

What is your greatest Xbox LIVE moment?
There was this one time during a match of Modern Warfare 2 where I was playing Search and Destroy. I was the last one alive and I had the bomb, and there were four other guys still alive on the other team. I planted the bomb, killed three of them, and finished the last guy with a throwing knife while he was in Final Stand. I felt pretty boss after that.

If you could trade places with anyone for one day, who would it be?
Gabe Newell. I always wondered what it would be like to be the source of 75% of video game-related jokes nowadays.

If you could be any video game character, who would it be?
Tough decision, but I would have to pick Soldier from Team Fortress 2.

Complete this sentence: "People of Earth …
“ … bring me your Hot Pockets!"

What would you like to be doing in ten years?
Either serving in the Navy or working animation, hopefully at one of my favorite game developers such as Ubisoft, Valve, Naughty Dog, Gearbox, and much more.

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!
