It’s me, Sage, wishing you a weekend full of game-related activities, a never-ending supply of your favorite snacks, and zero calls from telemarketers. While you’re getting your game on this A.M, we here in Orbit have an announcement we’d like to make. Many of you may have seen a previous announcement regarding interviews for 2 new moderators in our Discord Community. To our surprise, we were contacted by someone who offered much more than what we envisioned for the Mod role. So, we sat down together and had a chat about our vision for GLN’s future. We discovered that he is the perfect fit for our Team and our community.
Please join us in welcoming our new Creative Director, Teddars! To tell us a bit about himself, his experience, and what his immediate focus is in our community, here’s the man himself –
I’m a 35-year-old pixel pusher, dad, and gamer from just outside Toronto, Ontario, Canada. My day job has me leading a team of User Experience Designers. What does that mean? I love to make stuff work. I want both the business to thrive and the user to accomplish their goals without having to resort to a help section or instruction manual. I have experience developing websites and designing user interfaces for products with userbases topping 20 million users. Creating products for PEOPLE is part of my daily job.
I’ve been gaming since forever – I’ve had multiple stints as Guild / Clan leaders in my gaming career and playing with others is my favourite thing in the world to do. I spent years playing World of Warcraft, and have transitioned to survival shooters (over a thousand hours in DayZ standalone), looter shooters, RPGs, and spend a good chunk of my time on pen and paper roleplaying games. Telling stories, creating fun environments, and making sure everyone around me is having a good time is what I’m passionate about. I’m hoping to marry some of my experience from both my work life, as well as my gaming life, to the GamerLoop Network to help this community thrive.
My focus is going to be helping out with graphics for streams, the community, promotions, podcasts, and for whatever else the GLN needs! On top of that, I’m going to try to help out in discord as much as possible with Bots, emojis, and trying to streamline our member experience by helping to organize content. I’m always online, so don’t be shy!
We’d like to express our gratitude to Teddars for everything has done as a member of our community and we look forward to the amazing things he’ll do as a Leader going forward!
