I was born in LA, but my family moved to the Wichita, Kansas area when I was 9. I moved back out to LA almost 4 years ago!
My greatest personal accomplishment was being Bayonetta for the Playboy/Nintendo collaboration for the Bayonetta 2 release. I’ve been a diehard Nintendo fangirl since before I could tie my own shoes, so to be able to work with them professionally on a game I loved was phenomenal. Now that Bayonetta is going to be a playable character in Smash Bros, I feel especially lucky and accomplished.
It’s not necessarily crazy as it is crazy AWESOME, but I did one of the most exciting (and terrifying) things of my life when I went to Japan. My friends and I rented go-karts in Akihabara dressed as Super Mario characters and drove around on the streets of Tokyo, unsupervised. All we had to do was get an international driver’s permit and we just drove where we wanted to! Fortunately, Japanese drivers are very courteous and aware so we didn’t get hurt. People also took lots of pictures of us. It was so much fun. I would suggest you do it if you go to Japan!!
