Carlos Cruz

I am a community leader focused on building opportunities for underrepresented communities. I have a goal to advance the importance of radical joy and inclusivity involving technology, research, and equitable opportunity in games. This is by putting myself in spaces that involve creative expression and grassroots community building; or I create them.

I'm an artist and a podcaster. I work in education. I love working with the next generation and inspiring their biggest aspirations.

Some of my favorite art styles are that of Kiana Khansmith, Ken Sugimori, and Bryan Lee O'Malley. I enjoy streaming many different games, traveling to see new places, and following basketball.
