Podcast Host & Producer

Alfred has been attending Otafest since 2006 and has been part of the staff since 2013. During his time with Otafest, he has run the gamut of roles: regular attendee, cosplayer, panelist, forum troll, Photo Booth coordinator, videographer, etc.

Alfred is the podcast producer and one of the co-hosts. He likes old-school FPS games, photography, and collecting vintage cameras. He dislikes MOBAs, neckbeards, and talking about himself in third-person.


Podcast Host

Jei (PenguinEngine) is a wearer of many hats, both literal and figurative. He has been a part of Otafest's planning staff for over 10 years. Starting in 2007 with bringing the Maid Cafe to life, he has since moved on to other projects from contributing to community panels (Bento Banzai, anyone?) to initiating Otafest's digital content production by hosting the Otafest Podcast.

During Otafest he can be found assisting others as part of the Emergency Management team alongside Special Events.

When he's not working on Otafest projects, Jei's pursuit for great food, video games, music, friendships, random facts and shenanigans drive his daily life. He is a fan of hockey, The Legend of Zelda, One Piece, wordplay, reading, exploring nature, and is a self-anointed Pokémon professor (formerly Champion).
