300-rokashi

This week, my conversation is with indie game maker Rokashi from Toronto.

We talked about the current game industry and the need for diversity throughout (journalists, makers, characters, etc.) as well as the process behind his own game titled “I’m Fine”. I think you’ll really empathize with Rokashi’s work and his willingness to get involved in gaming vis-à-vis his own personal experiences.

Who says you need to be a master programmer to create your own games? Not Rokashi! Find out more in this week’s interview!

300-courtney-eimerman-wallace

LGBT History Month continues with Courtney Eimerman-Wallace, a UI/UX engineer in Washington, D.C.

What’s most interesting about Courtney is her non-traditional path into technology. But it’s clearly worked to her advantage! Aside from her work with BlueLabs, Courtney has also worked as a creative technologist for iStrategyLabs and is currently the City Director for Washington, D.C. for Lesbians Who Tech. Courtney’s positive outlook and outlook on life can be attributed to her two B’s: be there and be involved. Enjoy the interview, and thanks to Leanne Pittsford at Lesbians Who Tech for the introduction!
