I don’t even think The Beatles liked the song “Dig A Pony.”

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.


The way to this Ambassador’s heart is with bacon and startling assassinations. While cin8412 appreciates movies, sports and card games, she is also a big fan of helping others out through the Xbox Community Ambassador program.

What's the story behind your gamertag?
It's my name and my birth year. Not very creative, but it's me.

What do you do when you're not playing games?
I try to spend as much time with my boyfriend as possible. Movies, dinner, and when it's in season, we watch or listen to baseball games together. I also enjoy spending time with my friends. We have themed dinners and play board games. Our last one was Breakfast Night (with mountains of bacon) and then we played Cards Against Humanity. I spend more time than I'd like to admit answering questions on Yahoo Answers and browsing imgur.

How long have you been on Xbox LIVE? 
Over six years.

What's the best feature of Xbox LIVE?

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!
