Fast Five

with cci alum, Evie Powell

1: Shuffle your music Library. What song played first?
“Wings” by Little Mix. I'm pretty happy that song is the one that played first. It's a good one!
 
2: Are E-Sports sports and if so, are E-Sport players athletes:
Well, I don't have the hardest stance on this but yes, I would characterize E-Sports as sports. The training people go through to play E-Sports requires a mental and physical fortitude that a couch potato would not have. And yes, since all players of sports are considered athletes then players of E-Sports would also be E-Athletes.

 3: What game do you wish you designed:
Beat Saber

4: Favorite gaming device:
HTC Vive

5: Guilty Pleasure APP (a real Time Vampire):
Toon Blast
