How did you get started in esports?

Growing up, video games were not merely a pastime, but an integral part of my identity. As a child, I used to retreat into the fascinating realms of gaming, engrossed by their intricacies and possibilities. My journey into the world of entertainment started there, providing me with an understanding and appreciation of this ever-evolving medium. However, it wasn’t until I discovered the growing field of eSports that I realized the full potential of my passion. This transformative moment was the catalyst for the inception of Viral Vision Entertainment. My love for gaming was always present, but the advent of mobile gaming technology brought it into sharper focus. The ubiquity and accessibility of mobile gaming platforms offered a unique opportunity to revolutionize the eSports industry. Harnessing this potential, I embarked on the journey of starting Viral Vision Entertainment, aiming to leave a lasting impact on the North American eSports landscape.

What work have you or your company done within the esports industry?

Though Viral Vision Entertainment is a relatively new venture, our mission is ambitious and our vision is steadfast. Our current focus is on building a formidable team of mobile gaming players. We are assembling a group of talented and passionate individuals who share our belief in the transformative power of eSports. We are not just creating a team, but a supportive and collaborative environment where players can push their limits and aim for excellence

What is your biggest goal for the year ahead?

In the year ahead, we are setting our sights high. Winning tournaments is a priority, as is ensuring the dreams of our team members are turned into a reality. However, our goals are not limited to competitive success alone. We are committed to fostering the next generation of eSports talent. We are working on initiatives aimed at college students, intending to guide them towards following their passion in eSports, be it through the creation of leagues, mentorship programs, or other exciting opportunities.

Which aspect of the esports industry are you passionate about?

My passion for eSports is manifold. I am fascinated by the constant evolution of the industry, the innovation it encourages, and the close-knit communities it builds. I am moved by the raw talent of players, their dedication, and their pursuit of mastery. Most of all, I am passionate about the potential of eSports to bridge divides, bring people together, and transform lives.

From your perspective, what would you like to see the esports industry do better?

There are areas where I believe the eSports industry could do better. For one, we need to address the lack of standardized regulations and comprehensive player protections. eSports players should be provided with the same level of support and security as traditional athletes. Additionally, the industry needs to further work towards inclusivity and diversity. We must ensure that everyone, irrespective of their gender, race, or background, feels welcome and represented in the eSports arena. Ultimately, my journey in eSports is more than just a personal pursuit; it is about creating a space where everyone can embrace their passion, unlock their potential, and be part of a supportive and inclusive community.
