A Note From Our Founder

I'm proud to have helped AZHP Gaming provide video gaming services at over 190 events since 2006 including decade long runs as gaming room providers at anime and comic conventions, and the construction, growth, and support of a ton of the local competitive communities. I've also had an opportunity to work with an amazing group of passionate gamers on my staff, and been able to grow the knowledge base of myself and others in everything from video editing/production, arcade/electronics repair, tournament/event organization, social media management, graphic design and web management, and a ton of other valuable trades. Despite everything we've accomplished in our 12+ years, the last 12 months have been difficult on a business and a personal standpoint.

On a business level AZHP Gaming went though ownership and management changes, and we took a step back from the super busy activity level we've been known for throughout the last few years.
On a personal level I went back to work a normal job and focused on taking care of myself physically, mentally, and financially.
Making a positive difference in people's lives in a social video gaming atmosphere has always been my goal and no matter what the future holds, will remain the goal. The journey route may change, but the goal will not. Now I can't get into specifics yet for what the future may hold, but my goal of providing a positive social video gaming atmosphere for individuals and communities will not change and can only be improved and expanded upon based upon my experiences. But I can be generic in what my goals are for AZHP Gaming, as they've never really changed.

I want to open a physical location. A brick & mortar "AZHP Gaming Center" location with arcades, consoles, and PCs. Since I was a little kid, I've always been inspired by the type of places I grew up in, specifically arcades, card shops, and comic shops. The type of positive impact I'd be able to make in people's lives by running a physical location is tremendous. Utilizing all of the knowledge and experience I've gained throughout the last 12+ years, I know this would be a success for everyone involved. Over the next 6-12 months, we'll be exploring all of our options to make this happen. If you have suggestions or would like to provide input or support, feel free to reach out to us on any of our social media platforms. In the meantime, stay tuned for more information and announcements.

I love you guys, and will continue to dedicate my life to providing positive video gaming experiences for you. Thank you.
