We served over 400 Conference Associates who were dedicated to making the Game Developers Conference the best event possible for the attendees. Serving as staff was one of the most rewarding, fruitful, humbling work experiences I have ever had. I feel fortunate to have been mentored by a team of veteran industry professionals on the true potential of harnessing leadership capabilities through empowering people. The Conference Associate program continues to inspire me to be my best self, not only in my professional leadership experiences but also in my personal life. I am forever grateful for this opportunities and look forward to serving my fellow CAs throughout the year.
