Background

When the dog bites When the bee stings When I'm feeling sad I simply remember my favourite things And then I don't feel so bad

Inspiration

It's been a hell of a while. 2020 has been a trip, and 2021 is weird too. I started creating this deskmat in Summer of 2020 when I was trying to remember the things that helped shape my interests and career, in the midst of having cabin fever during the lockdown.

I hope this design speaks to both men and women, but I especially hope it resonates with other women and underrepresented folx in tech and games.

I firmly believe that gaming helped shape my critical and strategic thinking, my ability to make impactful decisions quickly, and expand my imagination into the realm of what's possible. Gaming isn't just a hobby, but it helped me carve the career I made for myself.
