My name is Anna, and I am currently working as a Senior UX Designer on Candy Crush Saga at King in Stockholm.
I am a skilled and motivated game developer with demonstrated success in the mobile game space, having previously worked on The Sims and Need For Speed franchises at EA in Melbourne. In 2018, I was recognised as one of MCV Pacific’s Top 50 Women in Games, and was selected for the Next Gen Leaders program, run by the International Games Developers Association (IGDA).
I have extensive international experience, having lived and worked on four different continents around the world. I started my career in board games, but quickly realised that my passion laid within exploring how people interact with digital games, understanding their motivations, and ultimately improving their gaming experiences.
I am an active advocate for diversity in the games industry and regularly speak at conferences, schools and universities about UI, UX Design, and how to create diverse, inclusive games communities.
Outside of work, I co-organise GeekSkate, a skate collective aimed at providing an inclusive environment for women and non-binary gamers and game developers to learn to skateboard. I'm also an enthusiastic League of Legends player, streaming regularly on my Twitch channel,
I hold qualifications in Graphic Design (2008-2011), UX Design (2017), and Accessible Player Experiences (2020).
