Why do you consider yourself a Gryffindor?
I like to look at the pros and the cons of the Hogwarts houses a lot, especially the ones usually considered “perfect.” I can be incredibly stubborn but I’ve also found that I fit best in leadership positions. I can be a bit of an idealist but I also have a habit of looking at the world in black and white rather than with theoretical grey areas. I also definitely subscribe to the “Gryffindor is best” way of thinking, which is 100% just a Gryffindor belief.
What's your favorite Harry Potter book and movie?
Favorite book is Prisoner of Azkaban because it introduces Sirius Black and Remus Lupin. Favorite movie is Sorcerer’s Stone because of all of the nostalgia it carries with it.
How does being a Gryffindor affect the way you work?
I have a tendency to take the lead on group projects or in student groups — I even directed a musical last fall — though that doesn’t mean I don’t take advice from others. Harry would’ve gotten nowhere if he didn’t have Hermione’s research and logic and Ron’s understanding of the wizarding world! I also think that the Gryffindor sense of right and wrong binds me to the timeframes, schedules, and deadlines I perpetually set for myself. Who knows what would happen if I didn’t follow them? (I do. It’s not pretty.)
Favorite Harry Potter quote?
“One can never have enough socks.” ― Albus Dumbledore
What do you hope to gain from your time at FableVision?
I’m honestly just excited to be surrounded by so many creative, multi-faceted people. When I work on games teams in school I usually wear a few different hats myself as director, producer, designer, and writer. I’m hoping to learn from interdisciplinary professionals here at FableVision and figure out not only what makes them tick but also what about their positions makes them happy.
