Alan Gonzalez -- aka "ZuruhMX" -- is a member of the Empire Arcadia eSports team and a developer at Hashtiv Social Media Platform. Before he became a member of Empire Arcadia, he was already recognized as a natural-born video game competitor who was making his mark in local eSports tournaments in Mexico. Zuruh doesn’t hide from the competition and is a serious contender on many hotly-contested titles, like Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros, and Pokemon VCG. Zuruh is a software engineer who looks to use both his vocational and gaming skills to help advance the eSports scene in his country. Zuruh decided to head down to Ottumwa, Iowa, to see for himself the historic “birthplace” of organized, competitive eSports. Being in the “Video Game Capital of the World” was an enriching experience and it has inspired he and his fellow Empire Arcadia teammates to learn more about eSports history. He now looks forward to taking that knowledge back to Mexico to help educate the local gamers and develop the Mexican gaming landscape into a professional arena. • Trading Card artwork by Caerwyn Akiwumi-Jones
