Ambassador Spotlight: IOLV

This Ambassador Spotlight is dedicated to IOLV, also called OLIV! IOLV has been with the program since August 2014. Along with their time as an Ambassador, you can catch IOLV on Beam broadcasting titles such as Mass Effect: Andromeda and Minecraft: the Xbox One Edition. Their most recent Achievements are earned in ME:A and Overwatch: Origins Edition.

Learn more about IOLV’s time on Xbox Live, introduction to the Xbox Ambassadors Program and interest in graphic design in our Q&A below.

How long have you been a member of the Xbox Community? What do you love most about playing on Xbox Live?

I’ve been part of the Xbox Ambassador program since August 2014, but coming up to my 7th year anniversary on Xbox Live. Although I’ve spent much longer than that playing Xbox as a kid with my brother.

What sorts of games do you play in your free time? Any games coming up that you’re specifically looking forward to playing?

At the moment, the games I’ve been playing are Mass Effect: Andromeda, Overwatch and Halo 5: Guardians. There aren’t too many games in particular that I’m excited for, other than the next main Halo game, Crackdown 3 and Red Dead Redemption 2.

When and how did you hear about the Ambassadors Program? How have you seen the Program grow?

I originally found out about the Ambassador Program a few years ago after getting an email, but hadn’t paid too much attention to it. After a while I got another email and decided to check it out, since joining they’ve added the Lounge and gave the website a complete overhaul.

What Ambassador Activities do you most like taking part in, and why?

I prefer to use Watchtower [the Ambassadors on Twitter tool] when assisting people, as its optimized for mobile devices and on the computer, and doesn’t have the same time constraints as chats [from the Ambassabank] – meaning you have to be there the entire time until the session ends.

Do you have a specific memory related to your time as an Ambassador you’d like to share?

One of the first memories of the program I had, was when the Lounge was first introduced, which wasn’t that long after I’d joined the program.

We heard you love graphic design! How would you describe your artistic style? How did you get into graphic design?

I don’t have a specific art style, since the projects I do often vary, so I never have a consistent theme. I first got into graphic design when I used to mess around with GIMP on my PC, but it wasn’t until I started a Web and Games Development course, that featured Digital Graphics as one of the subjects, that I really started to get into it, leading me to switch course the next year to allow me to be more creative.

You can find IOLV on Xbox Live and in the Lounge. IOLV will also be appearing on an upcoming episode of This Week on Xbox. Keep an eye out for their spot!
