  3. Hi All, My name is Miles Deponty, I also go by Tails as a nickname. I also work in the game industry as a producer/designer. I have been participating in Extra-Life for a few years now. I try to stream as often as I can on my Twitch. My favorite games are Adventure games or story driven games, though I love pretty much everything. If I am playing a multiplayer game please come and join in the fun! I will be shooting for my normal goal of $500 but I am going to try to go above that as much as possible. I am excited to be a part of something a lot bigger this year with the Extra-Life Guild. Glad to see so many in the area that are just as passionate! Looking forward to the fun that will be had this year! -Miles
