Board of Directors Bio: Lara Moritz

I got into gaming as a freshman in High School.

My brother wanted to use me and my friends as guinea pigs for this new thing he was doing (my brother is Alex Jackl and my sister is Petra Jackl– so I have a pretty amazing family there).  After the first game I was hooked.

You aren’t seeing double, Lara (r) and Petra (l) are twins.

I believe that I learned so much from gaming. I also gathered around me some of the finest human beings I have had the pleasure to call my friends.  This community of gamers has its problems, of course, but the quality of people regarding open-mindedness and intelligence has been astounding. We have a lot to be proud of.

I attribute some of my professional success to gaming as well. It taught me to be able to think quickly in pressure situations, find different ways to approach both people and problems and, how to handle an enraged Orc – because you know, that happens.

I would love to talk to you about my experiences and yours. I believe that we can make the world a better place, one game at a time.
