My name is Ericka Evans.

 

I am a Gamer Mom.

When I was 10 I wanted to be an architect or a kindergarten teacher.

I work as an Head of Production, Video Game Development.

I am most proud of always being a gamer. Games embody my faves; structure and creativity, but I never considered a video game career while in school. In my late 20’s, I shifted my career from children’s television to video games and I am most proud of jumping in with both feet and learning along the way.

The biggest obstacle I have faced was believing that success was something that I deserved it.

My advice to women is that there is a strong need for women in game development, particularly in design and programming and I want to hire you! It’s an exciting time to be in the games industry; it’s a new medium that is starting to mature and there are lots of places to make your mark.
