Hey, I’m Krysti Pryde! I’m a gamer, a model and a geek culture enthusiast. A lot of people know me as the runner up from Sony Playstation Original TV show The Tester season 3. That being said, I’m a huge Sony/Playstation 3 fan, as well as an avid PC gamer. My favorite types of games are First/Third person shooters, Survival Horror, and Fantasy/Adventure. I enjoy collecting rare games, and gaming memorabilia. I also enjoy doing 24hour charity streams – a little crazy, but so worth it!
I used to compete in MarvelvsCapcom 2, Soul Calibur and Counter Strike. I am currently looking to re-immerse myself in the competitive gaming scene, and am a huge fan of eSports. I’ve won many tournaments during my competitive days and I’m hoping to continue to hold my own in the future.
I’m an English major, and I do a lot of writing about games for my official website , as well as for many other sites across the web. I am often invited to attend conventions to speak on panels regarding a plethora of gaming topics. I enjoy public speaking, making YouTube videos, podcasts, streaming, game events and being a role model to young women who are interested in the gaming industry. I actually spend a lot of time talking to young girls who contact me with questions regarding the industry. Ideally, I would love to be a community manager within the industry, and keep involved with everyone in the gaming community.
Solid Snake and Metal Gear Solid changed my life, and I consider myself a martyr for the industry. I will do whatever I can to continue to promote gaming as well as women in gaming!
