At UC Berkeley, Kallie initially studied chemistry, then switched to Japanese and started writing the arts and entertainment sections for the school paper. Kallie decided to write about games because she saw a gap in the content. From there, she began freelance writing and making videos about the games industry—then a friend recommended she look into CBSi.
Kallie’s day starts with a check on Twitter to see what the gamer universe is talking about—because staying current is integral to her job. Kallie has meetings with her team, then works on her projects, whether that means writing an anime script, preparing for a livestream, or taking diligent notes while playing a game.
