Bio/Current Event: Remember in the original NES Metroid, when Samus took off her helmet and it turned out she was woman? It was totally jaw dropping at the time, since there were so few women game heroes in 1986, and I think it was one of the big moments that drew me into gaming as a kid. It’s been totally awesome to watch the gaming industry develop, and to see so many more women gaming these days (we make up more than half of all gamers now!). After watching Tom Hanks in ‘Big,’ I decided I wanted to be a toy tester when I grew up. I’d say this is pretty close! I’m assisting Legacy Interactive with a bunch of exciting new games, like the upcoming Criminal Minds game, and Ghost Whisperer which is due out next year. It’s a total privilege to be working with so many dynamic and creative people every day, and I can’t believe I get paid to do this.
