I’m the Creator and Founder of TRUgaming. I love anything and everything computer-related. I also have a deep love of Redbull (which is probably not a good thing). When I’m not crushing HC Team Deathmatch in Black Ops 4 I’m keeping the TRUmachine running like a brand new sports car. In my spare time i’m at the beach fishing and cooking for my friends while wearing an assortments of hats. My chicken parm is legendary.. So is my Creme Brulee. Pretty much anything I cook would make Gordon Ramsay blush. (j/k ILY Gordon <3)

Chief Operating Officer

Gamer Tag: TRU Operations


Favorite Games: Overwatch, CS:GO, Arma III

I am the CO-Founder of TRUgaming alongside my longtime friend Ben Zucker. Being a gamer at heart and always wanting to strive for more has led me here. I have always wanted to contribute more to the gaming community ever since I started gaming on my parents Dell computer playing Stronghold Crusader many years ago! After 4 deployments with the Navy, in 2016 I decided to make this dream come true with the founding of TRUgaming and the departure of the Navy. When I have spare time, I’m normally playing an assortment of first-person shooters from Overwatch to Arma 3. Unlike all the other staff, I do not work on site. I live in Corpus Christi TX, and work remotely. This is due to my main job, serving as a federal officer for Homeland Security.

Favorite Games: PUBG, 7 Days to Die, and Killing Floor

I’m the OG (original girl) in the TRU office and the behind-the-scenes superstar. My dogs Colt and Samantha are my favorite things ever. Dance is my first TRU love. I have a degree in it, and was a middle school teacher before I came to TRU! Fortnite is currently my jam but Killing Floor 2 and 7 Days to Die are pretty fun (even tho the Zoooombies always scare the $h*t outta me).

I’m the old-timer of the TRU Crew.
