Update: I won!

Hey, it's me again. I was recently picked as one of 5 finalists in the "Face of a Gamer" contest being run by the Entertainment Consumer Association (ECA). I'd appreciate any support that you, my fellow custom map-makers, would be willing to give me. Basically, you can vote for my entry by going to the ECA's facebook page and liking the post with my entry.

I defy negative gamer stereotypes. I stay fit in my free time, practicing taekwondo and jujitsu; I’m currently six months from my first-degree black belt. I have a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering and will have my PhD in Mechanical Engineering in two years. My research* uses gaming to help address an important need in society and is being already being used in local hospitals and clinics to improve the balance rehabilitation for patients experiencing stroke and other forms of neurotrauma. I’ve been a gamer since I was in middle school, and find the most enjoyment in playing games with my friends. My favorite games would have to be those made by Blizzard Entertainment, along with the Halo and DragonAge franchises. Currently, my game of choice is World of Warcraft – Mists of Pandaria, which I play with my fiancée.

I am a martial artist.
I am an engineer.
I am making a difference.
I am a gamer.

I think a lot of people are allergic to Facebook contests that involve liking pages in order to vote.

Good luck, Khalanil!

I suppose that's understandable.
