Staff Introduction – Baeger

Posted by esportswales July 6, 2020 in Esports
Today we sat down with Baeger aka Harrison Wingfield.
What is your gamer tag and how did you get the name?
Baeger – My dad’s nickname in the royal navy was Badger and I “inherited” it in school. Then one day I decided to change it up to something ungodly.

What age did you start playing games and what’s the first game you remember playing?
My first ever game was Sega Rally on the PS1 back when I was maybe 3 or 4 and I played that game a decent amount, then my dad bought Halo: CE when it came out and I was instantly hooked.
What made you decide to pursue a role in Esports? 
Gaming has always been my passion but I’ve always wanted to go into a rising market to be there at the foot of the hill – Esports is the natural evolution of gaming and getting invested in a team in the same way someone can get invested in Manchester United is so compelling and interesting!
What’s your all time favourite game?
Halo 3. No competition. My life was that game even BEFORE it came out, researching gameplay after school, reading every article I could about the campaign. Then the game came out and 2000 hours later; I regret nothing.  Now it’s out on PC, I’ll probably not see the outside world for a little while.  Oops!
What is a typical day like for you?
I’m a consultant for a large IT company doing a lot of contract work for government agencies by day, an obsessive marketer by night.
What do you like to do when you aren’t gaming or working in gaming? 
I basically live and breath marketing. Every day I’m reading marketing book, looking up marketing trends, analyzing random companies, It’s a weird hobby but I just find it so fascinating and I see it as a great way to use technology to really help make a difference in this day and age.  I’m also really into the typical music (and gigs), movies and I am a massive tech nerd.
Can you give any advice to anyone looking to start working in the Esports industry?
Never. Stop. Trying.
Any shout-outs?
Shoutout to the Horseplay community who are solely responsible for where I am today. Horseplay is a gaming community I helped found in 2014 and is still going strong today with meetups worldwide and a dedicated group who just wanna play some damn games.
