Convention work

I have over a decade’s experience staffing, reporting, or presenting at conventions. This page only lists the cons I’ve attended for professional work.

1. I worked for Mongoose Publishing as a professional GM for their tabletop RPG Traveller from 2010-2012. This involved attending Strategicon every year and hosting self-made sessions for convention attendees.

2. I was part of a team representing the MMORPG Legends of Equestria from 2013-2015, attending conventions such as BronyCon, Everfree Northwest, and Babscon. I usually worked behind the scenes with the programming team, such as testing on-site presentation builds or operating the gameplay the presenters were showing on the big screen.

8. I will be attending HPX Live 2020 as a staff member for HPX Growth and Brendon Burchard. As a junior editor on the video team, I’ll be helping convert the film team’s footage into quick promotional videos with as little turnaround time as possible.
