Meet The IVRL Founders


The IVRL founders are community leaders with years of experience in virtual reality. They have experience as moderators, team captains, production specialists, tournament leads, and more.

Mama Virds

Mama Virds

Chief Culture Manager


MamaVirds was introduced to VR back in 2020 by her son VirdsEyeBiew who played in Onward league tournaments. She could be found in the twitch channels cheering him on every time he played.

Mama became more involved with the community and engaging with players through leagues by becoming a mod and governor. She founded IVRL with a few goals in mind, keeping people together and having a place that can be called a second home to many.

Mama can be found socializing in discords poking fun with or at players and staff but always trying to keep everyone in line. She helps guide moderators in discord, supporting her team in many different ways.

Outside of IVRL, she has a full time job, three grown children, two huskies and loves to craft!



Operations Ninja, Creative


Etch is an entrepreneur, designer, developer, and VR junkie. Pushing the envelope of XR since 2015, starting IVRL was a chance to build the industry of VR Esports and entertainment.

With IVRL, he wears a lot of hats but focuses on operations, new initiatives, and creative design. Outside of IVRL, he has a background in electrical engineering, computer science, and venture design.

Etch has consulted for organizations ranging from Intel to IDEO and worked with cutting edge products. He's worked on things ranging from children's toys, data viz software, autonomous drones, to marine rescue equipment.

Outside of staring at his monitor for long hours, he likes hardware hacking, football, reading, and having a monitor strapped to his head.



Chief Creative, Code Wizard


Trip got into VR in late 2017 after doing a Vive demo at a local Microsoft store during some Black Friday shopping and jumped into Onward almost immediately.

Having played, captained, and commentated for the better part of 5 years Trip has a wide range of experiences that help build the IVRL.

When he's not in VR, Trip can be found in, on, or under the waters of Barbados where he spends his days freediving, scubadiving, and sailing and his nights creating and updating the assets that IVRL uses in their casting deck and website, yelling at Etch, and coming up with all kinds of new tricks to add to our production quality.

Dr. Outreach
