I'm the Director of Community Operations here at deviantART, which means I oversee the day to day running of the community, which includes the Help Desk, CEA Team as well as the Chat & Forums. I believe that community development is something that's an approach not a department, and after working a number of years leading local government projects as a community education worker, it's a dream job to combine my love of art and community development here at deviantART. I work alongside Heidi, our VP of Marketing and Moonbeam13, who is our Director of Community Relations.

I'm passionate about empowering artists through philanthropic opportunities, and have a particular love of tattoo culture and artwork that's inspired by music.

As part of my role at deviantART I have the honour of selecting Senior deviants as well as the Deviousness Award recipients.

I also write a column for the Fantasy Artist magazine all about deviantART and the amazing digital art from our community.
Seniorityheader 2 by fourteenthstar
This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after Senior Member accolade -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.

So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community. 

Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many others who deviate to be recognised in the crowd.

Today, we present to you the following deviants who have all been awarded Seniority in our current round of community recognitions. They have all been nominated for their efforts in the community by deviants, Staff and Volunteers.

Hello I couldn't find my question in the help desk nor do I know where to find it. My question is that on my profile it says that I'm a Traditional Art / Hobbyist is there anyway I can change this to something else?
