Quinton Meagher (aka Quinster) – Coach
Hey everyone! My name is Quinton, I am 21 years old, and was born in Denver, Colorado. I moved to Cary, NC when I was 7, so I call the triangle area my home.
When I moved to the area, my new neighbors lent me their Nintendo 64 console as a housewarming gift, and that’s when my passion for gaming truly began. The first game that I played was a Diddy Kong Racing game, and I was absolutely hooked. After my experience with the console, I decided to look up games on my laptop. I found a game called Roblox, and casually played the game throughout my childhood. In this game, I developed geometry skills, architectural creativity, and even fundamentals in Lua programming. Eventually I moved up to the Gamecube, and I would compete against my brother and friends in all sorts of games, whether that was Metroid, Need for Speed, Mario Kart, or Super Smash Bros.
By the time I was 12, I was competing online in popular Xbox titles such as Call of Duty. I would play in online open-bracket tournaments and wager matches against other serious competitors. This is when my passion for shooter games truly developed. Eventually, I switched to PC gaming and haven’t gone back since.
Nowadays, I am a student at NC State University and still play games competitively in my free time. The games that I currently compete in are Fortnite and Valorant. I genuinely enjoy reaction-based shooter games because they require such intense hand-eye coordination and vital communication skills. The hand-eye coordination has helped me in other areas of my life, such as learning musical instruments. I attribute a lot of my success with instrumentation to my lifelong experience in video games. I also attribute my ability to communicate in business scenarios with my communication skills that were built in my many years of gaming.
I am passionate about teaching the ropes of gaming to the youth because of how much it has impacted my life. I feel as if gaming has shaped me into a better, more balanced individual, and I genuinely believe it can do the same for so many other people.
