Guest Feature: Goldenboy


Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez joined the gaming scene years ago as a competitor when he experienced the same competitive sensations behind the controller as he had as an athlete throughout high school. His love for esports led to pursuing tournament titles in Halo, Call of Duty, and even Asphalt 4 for the cell phone.

His lovable personality and positive reputation as a community mentor unexpectedly put him at the forefront of the industry when, in 2011 at the MLG National Championships for Black Ops, Alex was invited to cast an event. Since then, he has been invited to host and cast events for ReedPop, Microsoft, Square-Enix, Sony, Activision, Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, MLG, IPL. WCG, UMG, ESL, Paradox Interactive… ok, basically everybody.

Goldenboy will be bringing back his luscious voice and charm to Gamers for Giving for the fourth year in a row. You’ll be able to catch Goldenboy on various stream broadcasts during the event, and word has it he even plans to stream a bit himself!

Be sure to show him some love on Twitter, and say hello during the event!

We’ll see you on April 1st and 2nd at the EMU Convocation Center!
