William Sutton

MisCon 38 Panel Volunteer

Hello! My name is William, I am a certified personal trainer, a cosplay enthusiast, and a lightsaber class instructor. I've studied martial arts and athletic training for a few years now to better emulate characters i admire and to help others do the same. i have a growing passion for the gaming world, a decent understanding of horror as a genre due to much personal research and i often find myself watching multi hour long video essays on the subjects i enjoy. my goal is to make more things accessible to people by understanding it myself and communicating back to people in a way that conveys those points to people in a digestible way.
