Jei (PenguinEngine) is a wearer of many hats, both literal and figurative. He has been a part of Otafest’s planning staff for over 10 years. Starting in 2007 with bringing the Maid Cafe to life, he has since moved on to other projects from contributing to community panels (Bento Banzai, anyone?) to initiating Otafest’s digital content production by hosting the Otafest Podcast and being a part of the Twitch stream production team.
During Otafest he can be found assisting others as part of the Emergency Management team alongside Special Events.
When he’s not working on Otafest projects, Jei’s pursuit for great food, video games, music, friendships, random facts and shenanigans drive his daily life. He is a fan of hockey, The Legend of Zelda, One Piece, wordplay, reading, exploring nature, and is a self-anointed Pokémon professor (formerly Champion).
