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 gamerspotlight@microsoft.com 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.

Interview

What's the story behind your gamertag?
There isn’t a real story, I have to give the credit to my parents since they gave me my name, and the combination of the first letters of my name result in my gamertag.

What do you do when you're not playing games?
Work, things inside and around our house and mostly on the weekends going to friends and relatives, going to the movies, etc. When we are visiting friends, we often play board and card games. And when the weather allows it, I go riding on my motorcycle.

What's the worst or weirdest job you've ever had?
The worst job was working in a kitchen of a self-service restaurant.

What's the best feature of Xbox LIVE?
Basically the communication abilities with friends. I personally like racing games, the leaderboards and the ability to race against my friends or their best lap times.

What do you think is the best game of all time?
That is difficult. I usually have certain periods where I have a favorite game, but to name the best game of all time, that’s hard. I can say that the game I’ve played the most in my life would be Civilization, so that would be my favorite.

What do you think is the best comic book of all time?
I think the comic book scene is somewhat different over here then in, for example the U.S., but there is only one comic book series that I’ve read when I was young and that is “Suske en Wiske.”

What drew you to the Xbox Community Ambassador Program?
At first, I was a bit hesitant to join, so it took some time before I applied, but the reason was the ability to help others with problems to let them experience the full potential of Xbox as much as possible.

Favorite cartoon character?
Spider-Man.

Who's your favorite superhero?
Batman.

If you could be any video game character, whom would it be?
The only one I can currently think of is Lara Croft, but I would be a male version. She travels around the world and sees a lot of different locations.

What's the last book you read?
Not really somebody who reads a lot. I’m currently reading the second book of Game of Thrones.


What is the Gamer Spotlight?

The Gamer Spotlight is a weekly feature here on Xbox.com 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!
