Sam Wright – Esports shoutcaster plus tech and games blogger

Got her start in video games with Nintendo games and playing Mortal Kombat 3 on PC that her dad had gotten.

Later her brother and his friends would play Dota in the weekends, and he eventually got signed to a pro team.
That lead to Sam wanting to cover the esports scene more seriously to help build the local scene.

That led to working alongside Paul ‘Redeye’ Chaloner on a big tournament, and he told her that she could have a career in esports.

That might sound like she got lucky, but she also worked hard to put herself in a situation where she could take advantage of that lucky break.

Besides writing about technology and games on her blog and going esports events, she studied journalism and chose a university where she could do radio.
So before working with esports, she worked in a newsroom.

All these elements clearly give her a lot of useful experience and you can tell by the way she approaches a job like hosting the Overwatch Contenders that she’s thought a lot about what it takes to work in esports and broadcasting in general.
