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.
