Please join me at my panel at #PAXWest 2018 – “Latinx in Games: We Are Here and You Belong Here Too” occuring Saturdaying September 1st at 3:30-4:30pm in the Cat Theater. Incredibly honored and extremely excited to be fostering a community for Latinx from every part of the world.
The Latinx community is filled with a strong, vibrant, and colorful culture that is reflected by the diversity of our roles spread all over the gaming industry. We’re fostering a community where Latinx can meet, exchange ideas, and grow.
You don’t have to be fully fluent in Spanish or raised completely Hispanic to be included here. We want to share our cultures, our struggles, and our triumphs with the entire Latinx community and our allies, in the hope that we inspire our next generation of developers.
Honored to be joined by:

In this exclusive podcast interview led by GGT Founder Adesina “Desi” Sanchez, Narz explains the psychology behind video game design, how it intersects with Positive Psychology, and offers advice to those who are dealing with an overuse of video games, as well as a less pathological view of why young people are so drawn to them.

What can I say other than I had so much fun at Twitch Con in Long Beach. It was my first time and I would have to say I had a blast for sure. My friends and I arrived three days earlier than the con so we spent days leading to it enjoy the sights (the weather was amazing!) and eating good food!
The weather really inspired me to find my Californian style. Compared to NYC, it was heaven! Living in NYC, winters can be such a drag wish mountains of snow and yellow slush lakes (Trust me you don’t wanna know what it is). God Bless Cali~
Best time was being Jaccuzzi side on periscope with my girls Cresta and LadyFox. Warning! The contents in that video might rustle some feathers. (LOL)
