I began my "life on dA" about 9 years ago on another account. I had no idea what I was doing but knew I loved what I saw and the people were groovy too!
After integrating into the community and learning the ropes, I was invited to be a then Gallery Director for the wallpaper gallery. Soon after, film came to dA. I have a lot of background in film and was offered the volunteer position for the film and animation team.
Fast forwarding a bit- in January of 2008, I became a full time employee of dA, working as the Assistant Director of Artist Relations. Very rewarding experience, and then, after the volunteer program was "restructured," and a trip to L.A., I became the Manager of Film Development full time. (October 2008)
January, 2009. - You'd have to ask what was in the water that month - it must have been slimy
I've met the love of my life, JesseLax here, and we're now married as of September 30, 2014.
I still adore several of the people I've met, here but you can say my "Passion" for the site is now lacking and THAT would be accurate.
My professional life has settled into a niche I couldn't be more thrilled with. Jesse and I, along with a small select group of others are managing www.Kwaaisoftware.com We design games for social platforms including mobile apps. Our true passion has come to light.
The birth of Roxxdolls has been a surprising, rewarding and successful new art form for me. All of the available dolls that are up for adoption/sale can be found on Etsy. Note me if you have questions Kari
