The Ninjala community's favorite tournament organizer and commentator

Starling is a Ninjala streamer who focuses on organizing Ninjala community tournaments. He is also a talented artist and animator, which he uses to express his passion for Ninjala. Many may also recognize him from our first official Ninjala tournament, where he commentated. Starling will be joining us again as part of the commentary team in our first European tournament, so learn more about him before the event!


How did you start your career as a streamer and what kind of content do you create?
I started my career as a streamer a little over two years ago, initially focusing only on drawing and animation streams to share with my friends, but eventually, I started adding games into the mix when Ninjala came around.

My content today is mostly focused on Ninjala tournaments, drawing, animation, as well as fitness and exercise. 

What is your favorite GungHo game and why?
Ninjala is by far my favorite GungHo game to date. I was introduced to it by my best friend a little before its official launch. I will never forget the childlike wonder and excitement I felt while I was trying to learn the game and improve with my friends, it was such a blast!

Do you have any tips for someone who just started playing Ninjala?
Absolutely! If you're new to Ninjala and you want to have a good time, I would strongly recommend that you start learning the game with a friend or two. Ninjala is at its best when you're playing with your friends!

How did you become a GungHo America Ambassador and what do you like the most about it?
I became a GungHo America Ambassador a little after my streams started gaining traction from the tournaments I was hosting in the Ninjala community. I was always close with the first wave of Ninjala Ambassadors, and being one had always been a big goal of mine. So I applied!

My favorite thing about being an Ambassador is that it puts me in a position to really push Ninjala forward to new audiences thanks to the help and support that I get from being part of the team. Nothing makes me happier than hearing the stories of new players falling in love with the game.

How has it been like commentating for the official Ninjala tournaments?
Commentating in official Ninjala tournaments had always been a big aspiration of mine. It makes me feel very inspired to see a lot of players that I know personally participating, and I feel honored that I get the chance to highlight their play.

Do you have any goals as a streamer and GungHo America Ambassador?
There is one goal that stands out among a few, which I will do everything I can to achieve. My goal as a GungHo America Ambassador is to bring every region in our game's community together as one so that we can all enjoy these fun, beautiful games together regardless of where we are in the world. Europe, Japan, North America, South America. One day we will all play together as one.

My main goal as a streamer right now is to build a healthy community that supports each other through anything we set our minds to. Whether that is fitness, art, music, language learning, or any other aspiration. 

What are your motivations for streaming?
I'm motivated by my own will to improve and create a better streaming experience every single day. 

Any advice for someone who wants to become a content creator?
Write it down. Find a piece of paper and write what you wish to do with your streaming or content creation, set a specific date and time, and then go out and do it. You will be amazing.

Anything else you'd like to mention to the readers?
If you'd made it this far, I owe you my deepest and most sincere thank you! You rock! You're literally the best! and nobody even comes close <3
