Welcome to ‘Meet The Abunai! Staff’, a column in which you’ll be introduced to our staff members. Staff members, they’re just like people! We’d love for you to get more acquainted with our dear volunteers and to accomplish this, they graciously agreed to be interviewed after I threatened them. Become familiar with the sublime Bas, our IT wunderkind.

Tell us a bit about yourself!
I’m organized and a gamer. Like things to have a system so you will usually find out that I have a plan for everything. Love to help people out, but little tolerance for ignorance.

When I’m not running between the entrance and game room at Abunai! I’m at home playing games with my son. Always looking forward to my next snowboard or motorcycle trip.


I drive nearly anything with two wheels given the chance.


It’s hard to find a landline to leave the matrix these days.


Frozen water is the best water

Playing a local 8 player Mario Kart match with other switch users, but during Abunai! it will probably be sleep.

If you spot me at Abunai! feel free to stop me, I’m always up for a chat even though I look very busy.
