Community leaders by day, superheroes by night.

Meet your '19-20 Tespa Community Team

Tespa's Community Coordinators are the superheroes of the Tespa universe. These specialized teams are tasked with the duty of defending Tespa's chapters against the forces of evil, while also providing the on-the-ground support that our leaders need to grow epic gaming communities.

Whether you're looking for a stalwart defender or a dependable friend, our Community Team is here to help.

Chapter Coordinators

On the front lines, Tespa's Chapter Coordinators are veteran chapter leaders and community managers that provide year-round mentorship and support to our chapter leaders. Each of our coordinators comes from a unique background in the gaming industry ask them for their story!

He can often be found chatting with chapter leaders, listening to sad boy metal albums, playing one of his many board games, or up late at night planning for WoW Classic.
