Meet Christian Bishop of Thunder Gaming in Long Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Christian Bishop.

Christian, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Right off of finishing a TV show with ABC “The Bachelor”, I decided to go all in on pursuing something I could be passionate about. I spent ten years working for corporate America and consistently performed very well. Walked away from a 200k job to find something I could be passionate about. Throughout my corporate career, I always maintained my entrepreneurial appetite opening several businesses including a cell phone store in Hollywood.

I always had a tough time answering the passion question. One day the light bulb went off. I’m a passionate gamer. Love video games. Eventually, I decided to dive all in and find a way to build a business and career in the space.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Like most people, I have the war stories of trusting people who I shouldn’t have. I ended up taking one of my Esports companies Public. Diving into a new industry, developing new skills, in the business of production and content is brutal.
