I've been an avid video gamer since I was a little girl playing Super Mario Brothers with my mom. I didn't have any next gen consoles until the Xbox 360, but I would go over to a neighbors house to play on their Nintendo 64. Computers have always been a big part of my life thanks to my dad and his love for them. I would read the reviews for games on the back of his Maximum PC magazines and eventually started purchasing games of my own. My look was actually inspired by video game characters, I would always gravitate towards creating characters with red hair with a slight shaved style to them.
I got hired on as the community manager for the VR capture software LIV early 2021, and since then have taken on other roles such as running influencer campaigns for VR developers, social media management and general marketing. Working for LIV perfectly aligned with my goals of waning to help other VR content creators pursue their dreams both by providing an interesting unique way of capture, and being able to get them paid for their efforts (through campaigns and more).
I quit my regular “9-5” job in 2017 to pursue what I loved at the time which was modeling. I had competed in bodybuilding competitions but didn't find it to be a lucrative or rewarding career path. I was a figure/art model for a time working for schools, classes and artists, but my heart was always with gaming. I found that I enjoyed freelance work - being my own boss, that how successful I was would be determined by the work I put into it, and “promotions” would happen as long as I continued to improve. In 2019 I formed my own LLC (Atom Bomb LLC) in order to encompass all the content creation and freelance things I do!
Pursing My Passions
In 2017 I discovered Twitch. I tried streaming a few times, since “I was already playing video games anyway.” It wasn't until 2018 that I realized I really enjoyed it decided to pursue content creation as a full time career. I loved the idea of building a community with similar personalities and interests to me, and formed the “Atom Bomb Brigade”. In early 2020 I made the critical switch of being a regular 'variety streamer' to focusing primarily on VR, and this was the best career decision I ever made.
