Hey everybody! I'm a 4th year Extra Lifer, and I am trying to rally the troops this year in Miami! I have participated for the past 3 years in Tampa, and I love being able to meet people from all around Florida, as well as the United States, doing something charitable and fun. 

 

I know Miami is deserving of a Guild this year. We have so many people in the community, this should be easy peasy! We are so spread out it is hard to organize things without knowing how many people are actually out there, so please feel free to reach out and make it easier to map where we really are!

 

So please, use this space to introduce yourselves and get to know each other. I'll start us off!
 

1. What do you go by?

Alex or Dino. People love calling me Dino, especially kids, and I always respond with a Rawr!

2. What are some of your favorite games?

Anything from old school to new school. Mainly FPS now. I play on both Xbox One and PC. Console: Call of Duty, Halo, party games | PC: CS:GO, Call of Duty, Overwatch, arcade games. I dig card games and board games too! Love the DC deck builder game! And Poker, Go Fish! Monopoly, and lots more!

3. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Japan, Germany and India. Japan because I love the culture and I spent 7 years learning the language. Germany because I also learned the language and seems like an amazing place to go, and India because I want to do a spiritual tour of the land and find my Zen.

4. What hobbies do you have, outside of gaming?

I LOVE working on my car! She's my baby and I treat her like royalty! Also rock climbing takes up a lot of my time. I am a photographer as well as work at a software company, so I have quite a few things to take up my time outside of gaming. 

5. When you're not recruiting for Extra-Life, we can most likely find you...?

Probably being a hermit at the house. I love streaming and competing. I also try and commentate on FGC events! Every now and then under the hood of my car, and if you really wanna so a dinosaur liftin' some iron, find me at the gym!

6. Post a picture that best represents you -- you, a meme, your pets, or all of the above!

This definitely describes me when asked who I relate to in a video game. DVA IS THE BEST TANK!

Hi Dino, Im Ralph and my daughter is a gamer (Fabu Rocks) and is our first year doing Extra Life. Not only is a great cause but a teachable moment for my 8 yr old daughter to participate in. If you need anything you can count with us.

 

Check out her community page to lear more about her.

 

Thanks

 

Ralph (Fabu Dad)

Hi Ralph!! I'm so glad you guys are participating this year! 

 

I completely agree that this is a great, teachable moment for your daughter, and it definitely brings me joy to see a girl gamer join our ranks! 

I'm currently coordinating with Nicklaus Children's Hospital's team to do a meeting with the gamers in our community so we can join efforts and finally interact with each other! 

 

I can't wait to hear about the incredible things you and your daughter accomplish while Extra Life-ing, and feel free to contact me about any questions you may have!

Well I tried to do it last year for the computer, but had issues with my computer along with, I couldn't get anyone to donate. This year I got a newer computer so I'm gonna try again on doing it. Anything with dealing with real life, I haven't been able to take part due to the fact, I'm not able to drive.

So I post a lot about alternative ways to fund-raise, and I was thinking about doing a video about it or possibly live streaming it, but I may be able to note down these ways and discuss them at the Miami Launch meeting, happening [hopefully] near the end of August.

 

Don't get too discouraged about not raising any money (it's really common, and it happens eventually I promise!), as long as the message is out there, we will benefit in some way.

 

Keep your hopes up buddy! Year two will be better!

We'd love to see this video if you are able to make it! Be sure to share with the community and tag it with "best practices".

We're glad you're giving it another shot! @Steve7151!

The community hub is a great place to find best practices and to pick the brains of fellow Extra Lifers too!

 

Let us know if we can help.

Hello! I'm glad I checked this thread, just in time to hear about the event on Monday. I'll be there.

 

1. What do you go by?

 

Real name is Nate, gamer handle is usually Tyrlis, but my Twitch handle is GamerSoldierDad from when I dabbled in gaming journalism.

 

2. What are some of your favorite games?

 

EVE Online has been an addiction of mine for ~3 years now. Aside from that, some of my all-time favorites are Crusader Kings 2, Half-Life 2, and the Total War series.

 

3. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

 

Rome, to wander around and be a history geek for a while.

I have a dog and also some children that demand my attention regularly. I like being outdoors, but only in the winter here in Miami...
