PR and Social Media Manager for Nerdy But Flirty
Hi. I’m Joanne. I like games. I like dance. I like dance games (mostly – some are a little weird). I like watching anime and reading manga. I like learning languages – both foreign and programming. By the way, I love coding, too. I like writing about random things, and am awful at writing self-descriptions (what do I say now?!), so please excuse any terrible awkwardness. I like acting cute, which occasionally/frequently means childish, but I can be mature when called upon. I like to sing. I also like photography and design, and am much better at those things than at drawing, but I enjoy that too.
I’m in love with Japan and Japanese games. Favorites include Final Fantasy, Legend of Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, The World Ends with You, Harvest Moon, Pokemon, Dance Dance Revolution (I said I like dance games, you knew that was coming!), and various obscure-ish indie ones (Recettear and Atelier Annie especially). Number one non-Japanese game favorite is a Korean online dance game called Audition, but there are other games I like too. Lately, I mostly just play whatever I have time to play. My mom has always strongly held the tragic opinion that “games are unfeminine and girls should not play them,” so what I played as a kid was mostly whatever my brother was choosing as a teenager. Then I got older and said screw it, I like games and I will play what I want. Then I got even older, and decided I wanted to make games. So there. My dream is to get a job as a game developer in Japan. To that end, I’m a student studying Software Engineering with a minor in Japanese, which also means I live on coffee and delivery food. Whoo!
