My name’s Gary, and I’m your newest AMD and Red Team Community Manager! I’ve already had the chance to talk to a few of you, and I’m excited to get to know even more.
It might come as no surprise to y’all that I mainly spend my free time playing video games, but I also love to hike, explore new restaurants and bars all over Austin, and also go see live music as much as possible. I graduated from UT with a communications degree with the idea that I would work in social media (preferably in video games), so here I am. :)
I’ve been gaming for as long as I can remember, going back to NES when I was a wee lad. I play most of the major releases with particular interest in online shooters and action RPGs. When a hot, new single player title isn’t fresh off the presses, you can find me playing everything from Apex Legends and Blackout to Overwatch and Rainbow Six: Siege.
This is my first job in the games industry, but I’ve been working in social media for nearly half a decade now. I started off as a community manager serving companies of all kinds – everything from restaurants, bars, and BNBs to dentists, mechanics, and comic shops – and I’m both excited and hugely proud to now be working with AMD. It’s a dream of mine to infuse my passion with my profession, and I feel lucky to get the opportunity to accomplish that here.
You can find me on the Red Team Discord as gary_games. Feel free to reach out to me if you want to say hi or discuss anything AMD related! You can also find me on Twitter @gary_froniewski if you want to talk about anything else, but it is a personal account that doesn’t represent AMD in any way, so please be aware of that when you visit.
