Oh hai! PAX East is over!

Long time since I posted.  Some because I haven’t been working out, but mostly because I’ve been crazy preparing for a big show for my company called PAX East.  Lots of media about PAX in this post so you can see what I do in my other life.   It was an awesome show and I hope that I did good by the Infinite Crisis team and all the hard work they put into making this game a success.  We had a huge tournament and I got to met all the Infinite Crisis pro players in person and they were so fun.   Niko also got to stop by and see the madness – was neat to have him finally see what I do at such a large scale.  See below for a timeline of events with corresponding pictures.

It all started with turning this:

One of the players didn’t submit his player portrait in time, so I made the call to include a picture of my cat, Lily, as his profile picture.  This went live in front of thousands of fans online and at the venue!  Lily is famous!

 Below is me with my alter ego, Catwoman, and a pro player from Team Dignitas, AndzQ.  Both are awesome.

Me and my buddy, Will.  A/K/A Will the Intern.  He’s a Craic head who I got an internship for at Turbine.  He’s learning Infinite Crisis.

My co-worker Russ as Starro and his two kids (Supergirl and Doomsday).  EPIC.

Me and my boy, Erik.  Love this guy.  It was his 30th birthday and he spent it working in the Infinite Crisis booth.

Johnny D and Susie Diesel’s son, Jack checking out Infinite Crisis at PAX East.  He and his friends appeared to have fun.

My friend and colleague, Nick, doesn’t smile in pictures.  Which results in him looking miserable to be in any picture with me.  I finally got him to smile.  We might have had some libations prior. Good way to end PAX East.

Did I mention that I have one of the best jobs, like ever?  So great to have amazing colleagues and friends to share the experience with.  Also, if you’re paying close attention, you can see that I *might* have discovered that I can drink alcohol again.  Experimenting with tequila, and so far, so good.

Getting back to working out next Tuesday.  Going to truly ease back into things and be smart about what I do.  Priority number one is getting my shoulder back to a healthy state.  Meow.

  1. The show was awesome. The infinite crisis area was top drawer – one of the best at the show. Thanks for hooking Jack and his friends up!
