Welcome back to our ‘Meet the 2017 Organizers’ series, where we showcase one of our dedicated organizers working behind the scenes of QGCon to make it all happen!

QGCon is right around the corner! We only have 2 more organizers left in the series and this week in the spotlight is Christopher Goetz, volunteering his time and talents to our panels and much more!

Pronouns: He/his
What city do you live in?: Iowa City (Iowa) and Berkeley (California)
What identities do you hold?: gay
What are your favorite games?: Dark Souls 3, Minecraft, and Paper Mario
If you could live in any game world, what would it be? Why?: I would live in Paper Mario’s world, and to answer the ‘why,’ I use a quote from Roland Barthes (who imagined dwelling inside an old photograph): “It is as if I were certain of having been there or of going there.”
What about QGcon are you most excited about?: I’m really excited about the chance to see familiar faces (co-organizers, presenters, etc.) as well as new faces in our new conference location. Also, the talks this year are going to be especially amazing.


Reminder that we’re still looking for homestay hosts and volunteers!
