Hive Media Inc.

June 3rd, 2011

I have started working at a small start-up called Hive Media Inc. as a Technical Artist.

One of the projects I get to work on is The Deadliest Catch Social Game for Facebook!

Do you have what it takes to survive being a Greenhorn on the Bering Sea? Get ready to name your boat, stack your pots and cast off. You’ll be dropping pots, sorting crab and competing with your friends when you play Deadliest Catch the Social Game on Facebook.

I’m super excited to be working with new people and on new projects!

Globby Awards!!!

January 31st, 2011

I won Globby Awards!! Actually, it was for last month, but we were running a little late on passing them out so I got it today.

What is a Globby Award you ask? It’s WishB’s equivalent of an “Employee of the Month” award. Our “trophies” are these cute Glob Plushies. I’ve been wanting one since we officially started selling them, (You can buy one here!) and now I don’t have to buy one!!

Below is a pimped out picture of my awesome Glob Plushie.

P.S.
The “Globinator” is this cool picture editing tool that we have in GlobWorld. You can add stickers, effects, and draw all over pictures that you upload.
