1. What year did you become a professional gamer?
I’m not really considering myself as a professional gamer. I’ve been playing video games since I was little, but it has always been just for fun.
I would say 2007, when I started playing World of Warcraft, was a great start to my gaming “career”. I could play for hours and hours, day and night. Just couldn’t get enough of it!
2. Favorite current game/ favorite game of all time?
Right now I’m totally hooked on Overwatch, and have been since it came out. Mercy main <3
3. What game got you started in gaming?
World of Warcraft. A whole new adventure started when I made my very first WoW character – Cinelle the draenei hunter. I was also hooked on The Sims when it first came out.
My dad played games like Warcraft and Command & Conquer back in the days, so I got to grow up with a lot of gaming.
4. What part of your setup can’t you live without?
It might not be a part of my setup, but my gaming chair is something I couldn’t live without. I have the back of an 80-year-old, so my chair is like sitting on a cloud full of happiness. My chair was also the first thing I bought with donation money from my regulars, so it means a lot to me.
5. Something no one knows about you?
If I tell you, it won’t be a secret anymore... now where’s the fun in that?
6. What are your passions besides gaming?
My work with children (child welfare), music and interior design.
7. What's your highest gaming accomplishment?
When I was younger I was really shy, I couldn’t even talk in a mic with guild mates or anything. When I started streaming like 3 years ago it changed my gaming experience completely. I built a great community, and got friends with the same interests as me. I get to hang out with people doing the thing I love the most – gaming. That for me is a big accomplishment, and I will forever be grateful for that.
For the future I’m hoping to become partnered with Twitch, to show that introverts can make it in this extroverted world as well.
8. What's your advice for young gamers?
Just be your weird little self. Don’t be like everyone else! You’re awesome just the way you are.
9. What’s your favorite part of being a part of Team Kitty?
I’m super excited to be a part of this amazing and supportive community. It seems like a community full of positive vibes. I can’t wait to get to know my new team mates!
10. Best gaming tip/trick?
Pretty cliché, but... have fun! And maybe put yourself a little bit out of your own comfort zone.
