After that I moved into a marketing role for an digital sports media company in Austin, where I managed the marketing activities for a new eSports vertical that launched in 2016.
What was your favorite childhood video game? Street Fighter II: Special Championship Edition for the Sega Genesis. That was the first video game I ever owned, and I still love fighting games to this day because of it.
