Spotlight: 

Andrew from XBO
Name: Andrew Zulpo

Email: andrew@xboxottawa.ca

Moniker: Z (usually pronounced Zee, even though I'm Canadian and we say Zed)

Sex: Male

Country of Residence: Canada (South Korea currently though for the next 11 months)

Education: Engineering Physics Graduate, Queen's University

How would we know you: I'm 50% of Fire Team Charlie videos and I co-run www.XboxOttawa.ca, or maybe you've met me on XBC :)

Favourite Games: Currently (Halo, Burnout3, Links2004) Forever(Halo, FinalFantasy7, SuperMetroid, Zelda DX, GranTurismo3, Goldeneye)

Gaming Roles: Well, I generally play by myself, really the only team game I play is Halo multiplayer. Back when I started playing it I was usually the sniper (I had the lowest sensitivity amongst my friends at 6 and was designated sniper) but its been about a year since I played like that, or with that low senstivity. If you asked Ben he'd say my self chosen role now was Stat-Whore, but thats just not my fault :)

Gaming Rig(s): With me in South Korea: (Xbox, PC) Back home in Canada: (GBA, GBC, PS2, N64, SNES)

Gaming Groups / Squads / Clans: I play Halo with other guys from west Ottawa, we usually play under the tag FTC online and try to organize LANS in the city through the website.

Favourite Sites: halo.bungie.org (and almost any other Halo related site, I can't get enough), slashdot.org, wired.com, dslreports.com (I love speedtests)

Favourite Book: The Foundation Series by Isaac Asimov

Hobbies / Activities / Interests: I used to play competitive basketball and the guitar, but University did away with that. I've been gaming steadily since about 12 when my parents finally let me get a SNES. I love good films and un-popular music. I enjoy nothing more than creating, and video is my favourite medium, our little series and the website keep me pretty busy but I like it.

Accomplishments / Achievements: I'm damn proud of graduating university with an Eng Phys degree. I've travelled extensively througout the world. I really consider the website an accomplishment, I didnt know jack about jack 2 years ago, but this community has been great and I'm proud to be a part of it.

Blurb: If you like soft music listen to a band called "Jejune". If you like hard music listen to a band called "Darkest Hour". An no matter what you do never, never, never play Superman for the 64.
