PMS|H2O Business Development is a fairly new department of PMS|H2O Clan. They assist the clan by managing sponsors, gaining new sponsor prospects, and managing the Brand Management Team. This team works intimately with our sponsors and facilitates PMS|H2O relations with them.
PMS Goosechecka: When did you join the clan and why?
Flixxy PMS: I joined PMS during the summer after my freshman year of college, back in 2009. I had just purchased an Xbox to get back into console gaming and had already discovered the general XBL population's disdain for female gamers in public matches. PMS was a great place to meet some genuinely awesome people to play with!
PMS Goosechecka: Where does the name 'Flixxy' come from?
Flixxy PMS: Flixxy's come from an evolution of handles, really. I used to go by Firefly something-or-other back in Runescape and my first MMOs. When Firefly was taken in new games, I would switch out the x for a y, and go by Fireflx. Guildies started calling me Flix and Flixy.... and it just kind of grew from that.
PMS Goosechecka: Other than member, what was the first position you held in the clan?
Flixxy PMS: Technically, I guess the first position that I held was Practice Captain. Then Co-Practice Manager to Practice Manager, followed by Co-Leader (all within the Left 4 Dead 360 division). Then I moved into the Editorial Director position, and now I am the Assistant Business Development Director.
PMS Goosechecka: How long were you Editorial Director?
Flixxy PMS: About one year, three months.
PMS Goosechecka: So what exactly is an Assistant Business Development Director?
Flixxy PMS: It's a pretty new position for the clan. I work with Ticorah PMS, the Business Development Director, in a bunch of different tasks. It includes managing relationships with current sponsors, acquiring new ones, and leading the Brand Management Team, amongst other jobs.
PMS Goosechecka: What is your favorite color?
Flixxy PMS: Green! Also purple.
PMS Goosechecka: What kind of games do you enjoy playing the most?
Flixxy PMS: FPS games, generally. I'm a tad competitive. I play most everything, though. Pokemon, included!
PMS Goosechecka: What is the first video game you ever played?
Flixxy PMS: That's a tough question. Probably MechWarrior on PC back when I was around six years old. I used to play it with my father. After that, a whole slew of N64 games with my little brother, H2O dastrdly.
PMS Goosechecka: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Flixxy PMS: I should be graduated from my undergraduate career at UCSC by December of 2012. After that, I hope to be working at some awesome company in the video games industry. We shall see!
PMS Goosechecka: What is your dream job?
Flixxy PMS: I don't have a set dream job, per se, but I want to work on the business/marketing/project management/production side of the video games industry. I'm a bit of a Microsoft fan girl, so that's always something that I'm shooting for. It's more of the industry that I'm really shooting for, though.
PMS Goosechecka: If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?
1. The means to bring my horses up to Santa Cruz with me.
2. A time stopper.... I always have too much on my plate.
3. MOAR WISHES.!!1!one!!
PMS Goosechecka: What do you do when you're not gaming?
Flixxy PMS: Oh, lots of stuff. I'm a Business Management Economics major at UC Santa Cruz, so that takes up a fair amount of time. I'm also in a Co-Ed, Professional Business Fraternity called Delta Sigma Pi. We have professional speakers come, do community service events, study, etc. I'm one of the presidents of the local Rotary club, so that entails planning and participating in community service events. Then on top of that, there's clan stuff and trying to find time to sleep.
PMS Goosechecka: Do you have a gaming catchphrase / ritual / trademark?
Flixxy PMS: Not really. My Call of Duty crew is always making fun of my callouts, though. I never know the official names for things, so I call them the first thing that comes to mind. Like "Tonka", or "exploding barrely area".
PMS Goosechecka: Final question: Chocolate, vanilla, or something else?
Flixxy PMS: Chocolate, definitely. Although Strawberry is a close second.
