Geoff Ramsey RTX 2014 Interview

This Fourth of July weekend, I had the distinct pleasure of speaking with Achievement Hunter's Geoff Ramsey at RTX 2014.

Being one of the founding members of the successful online entertainment powerhouse, Rooster Teeth, Geoff provided unique insight into his current role in the company, the overwhelming support of their fans, and the outlook for the future.

"It’s kind of indescribable,” Geoff said when asked about the success of the company and event. “I feel lucky enough just waking up day-to-day and going to work with my best friends and getting to play video games.

“But then to see 30,000 people at an event and know that they all appreciate what you do enough to take time out of their personal lives to come and spend a weekend in it is hard to put into words.”

What is RTX?

Starting as a comparatively small gathering of fans in 2011, RTX was originally intended as a celebration of Rooster Teeth and their dedicated community. Although the event has certainly retained this, it has seen some remarkable growth in just a few short years.

In 2011, the event has about 500 members of the RT community in attendance. The event has quickly blown up with over 30,000 fans packed into the large Austin Convention Center in 2014. Likewise, the event itself has expanded, with exhibitors from various gaming and internet-related companies joining in on the fun. Rooster Teeth now describes the event as “a convention hosted by Rooster Teeth, where we celebrate internet culture and gaming.”
