Xbox 360 Gamer Spotlight – February

Xbox Logo 600x300

Our next February Illum is at present a Texan, but his heart bleeds Crimson.  He knows a little something about the lottery and was nice enough to take a minute to answer my inquiries.


1.       What title are you dedicating the bulk of your gaming to time currently?

Minecraft as of recent.

The more appropriate title should be MineCRACK considering how addictive and time draining it can become. With no clear goal presented in the game, your mind sets the goals and the only limitation is your creativity.

Crimson Tide

2.       What’s your favorite Video Game of all time?
Chrono Trigger.

Revolutionary for it’s ability to end in multiple ways depending upon the players actions. Combine that with one of the best written stories, memorable foes, and a stellar score and I still remember this gem thoroughly after more than a decade and a half.

3.       What’s your profession?

Merchandising and Business Development Manager for Houston GTECH. GTECH is a third party vendor that administers 70% of the lotteries all around the world.

4.       How about life/work goals?

Oh you know the usual, world domination and riches up to my eyeballs.

5.       What kind of extracurricular activities do you enjoy?

I play a lot of full court basketball and enjoy jogging. I am also an avid college football fan, Roll Tide.

6.       Are you active in your community?

Unfortunately not at the moment because of time constraints, but I plan to be in the future.

7.       What projects are you currently involved in?

Just completed a startup sales force team in NYC for the NY lottery and will be receiving my companies highest honor for that. Upcoming projects are S.H.A.P.E. which in short is a lottery retailer training program for the Texas state Lottery.

8.      What’s your favorite form of entertainment?  Television, movies, books, music, video games?

Movies are such a fun and instant escape from a hectic day and something I can share with my wife consistently. We enjoy making a great dinner and then going on a mini vacation for 2 hours. Try it sometime.

9.     What three words best describe you?

Amicable, Determined, Strong

10.   What’s your Gamertag or PSN ID?

Gamertag: Knowledge is

I split time between games journalism and making video games. My love of it’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones), fitness and my family define me otherwise.
