001.jpgAt this past EVO 2016, I announced a special project that I’ve been working on. EVO JAPAN. I had the honor to make the announcement alongside two individuals that are pillars within the gaming industry & for fighting games, Mr. Katsuhiro Harada (TEKKEN) and Mr. Yoshinori Ono (Street Fighter). More information will be announced at this coming Tokyo Game Show in September.

I forgot to mention here! As of last month, I am now officially contracted to work with Bandai Namco Entertainment as the Brand and Community Advisor for TEKKEN. If you didn’t know. I love the TEKKEN brand and series of games. Looking forward to doing a lot more with TEKKEN across the globe!

This isn’t my full time gig, but just another thing I’ll be taking care of as I evolve to my final form. ^_^

I’ll be taking TEKKEN 7: FATED RETRIBUTION with me to various events across North America. Next one? NORTHWEST MAJORS taking place near Seattle, WA next weekend! See you there!


Hello everyone! Wanted to share that I am now the Global Business Development Manager for Gaming at EVO. I’ll be focused on bringing more business and eyes to the fighting game community (FGC)! See you at EVO!

BTW. Working with EVO/FGC was something I always did. It’s not my main job, BUT it will be a main focus. I’ll tell you about my full-time gig soon.


I saw that the news is out there. I wanted to thank everyone I’ve worked with at Mad Catz over the last 8 years.

As you probably have heard. Mad Catz has been restructuring and the company work force has been affected by layoffs. I was laid off last week as a result of this. I have nothing but deep love and admiration for Mad Catz. MCZ is a company that believed in me and a community that I love. Even though everyone knew I was planning on leaving, they decided to take care of me and let me go, which I am very grateful for. Thank you Mad Catz.

We grew that brand to be something amazing. I’ll always cherish the memories, knowledge, friendships and connections we’ve shared. I wish Mad Catz nothing but the best in the future.

I’ll still be around gaming. I’ll still be involved with the fighting game community. What’s next? You’ll find out soon. Thanks everyone for the love and support over the past few years.
