Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hello i am Jesse i host tournaments for popular Nintendo Switch game Super Smash Bros Ultimate under the Smash Online Global Series Earthquake. I also compete locally
What Inspires You Every day? : My Little dog named Buddy hanging with him inspires me to keep at what i do in life whether its smash tournaments or just getting by day to day life
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: If someone tries to prevent you from doing what you want to accomplish ignore them. You have got to keep going
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My goal at the moment is to keep up with tournament organization whether that’s keeping up with SOG (Smash Online Global) or helping other organizations in the competitive scene. I love tournament organization and the thought of helping run on some of those bigger tournaments are the big goal.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : The pandemic has not affected me too hard as others, However moving everything from offline to online has definitely crowded the online scene a lot. Making it harder for smaller tournaments to get recognized such as SOG. But it has since become way better.
What is a message you would like to give others? : If you compete for anything video games,sports, etc keep entering events whether big or small. As people like me can only organize events as long as people join them
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: Aside from tournament organization i do some streaming on twitch with pokemon shiny hunts and just like to hang out with friends when i can. I also run a small online crew named The Global Stingers we play at least once a week in crew battle with various others crews.
