Favorite quote: “We’re all born to broken people on their most honest day of living”

How would close friends and family describe you?: I was recently described by a friend in a game as “forbidden fruit in the garden of eden” - people know I’m bad, but they can’t help but try me out. I’m Einstein absent-minded with Sherlock cockiness.

What is your strategy going into the game?

Shit disturbing with social backstops.

I play a big game. Connect with everyone, ooze charisma, make people hate me and like me at the same time and assume that I will always be a target in front of them, until they realize that people aren’t picking the big personality for the battle matches. If any in game challenge can be broken, I’ll break it.

What type of personalities would you describe as opposite of yours? See above.

Favorite Sequester player: Ugh not a lot. Brad (S1), maybe Jesse (S2) if I squint hard enough.

What would you say your biggest weakness is in a game like Sequester? My background. People get scared when they hear I won a Canadian game show, am a lawyer, am a past online sequester player etc. I don’t need the Hamza’s of the world pointing out that I’m a good talker.

What do you think is the most common mistake that people make in a game like this? Trying to hide, making definitive non-fluent groups, fading too far into the background, or worrying about public perception. People respect game in Sequester, and the winner will be the best player. Add a sprinkle of flair and have some fun while you’re doing it then all of a sudden you’re a legend.

Oh, also the people that treat this like more than a game. We’re not friends, I won’t invite you to my dog’s wedding and I don’t care if you feel hurt by me booting you. This is for real money and I plan on winning the prize. It’s a lot of bitcoin. Adios.
