Fun with love and empathy
Community & Marketing Manager
At Wanderer, my primary duties were to research and author high level marketing & community management strategies to ensure success of Wanderer's upcoming release. Additionally I developed and scheduled content for various social media platforms - primarily Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Discord. I also copy wrote player facing content such as emails and developer logs. These tasks were challenging due to non-disclosure agreements - I often had to think outside of traditional methods of making content to begin spreading the word about Wanderer.
Games and Advocacy
Through 2018, I devoted around 20 hours per week to streaming on Twitch. I played a variety of games and streamed some development of GRIMOIRE. I built a small but dedicated community with a strong dedication to creating a safe space for minority gamers and fellow streamers.
Additionally, I ran a Discord concurrent to the stream. I was also honoured to receive funding through the inaugural BroadcastHER grant, to help my stream flourish.
