I animate motion graphic video ads that play on social media channels to attract new users to our awesome games! I work primarily with the user acquisition team in Los Angeles and the video team in Helsinki.
3. What’s your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part of my job is working with such talented and nice people. I get to play around with our beautiful game assets to create eye-catching ads. Also hearing our fans’ positive reactions to our games is such a reward.
4. Who is your favorite Fiend or Slug and why?
All the characters are amazing. There are so many different insect and animal species that I didn’t know existed. I love baby Bo because he’s a dragon slug and is in the purple Fiend family. He also lives in the ocean and I love the ocean.
5. When you are not working at Seriously or playing Best Fiends, what do you enjoy doing?
I love learning, listening to music, and discovering new places! I’m either learning a new animation skill, going to concerts, playing with my latest cooking gadgets, or planning for my next travel adventure. I still have a long list of places I want to visit.
